The best way to observe these moths is to go "sugaring". Mix one cup sugar, two or more mashed cfa test bananas, one oz. molasses and one bottle of beer to make the solution. Sometimes a bit of dry yeast is added cfp test to help with the fermentation process. Find a woodlot cgfns test and apply this bait mixture with a paint brush to tree trunks at dusk. Visit your trees through the evening to watch these magnificent moths and other insects enjoying the sugary concoction.The Penitent Underwing in the photograph chmm test to the right is visiting a patch of sugaring solution. Notice the bright eye shine which gives this family of insects their common name, the owlet moths.
