Staying up late with a light, sheet, and moth bait is becoming very popular with outdoor nature lovers. Even parks and nature centers have mothing programs scheduled to educate participants about the many different kinds of moths that can be found in the area. Looking for moths is very easy. Many people just leave a porch light on and check what is attracted to the light. Others use blacklights and Mercury Vapor Lights that put out light in color spectrums that can be irresistible to moths. Special fermented baits are also used to draw moths in. However you choose to moth, you'll be amazed at what shows up! Use our Moths of Ohio Guide at wildohio.gov to help you identify what you find.
