Invasion of the moths

May 5, 2012

Sweetwater and the surrounding area has been "going buggy" with an increase of moths in the area.
According to KTXS, the rise of the insects has been due in part to a succession of humidity, rain and extreme heat. From cars, homes and all over, the moths are known to hide in cracks and crevices.
Bill Lewis with Lewis Pest Control said that the increase is also due in part to a number of types of moths--including cutworm moths--laying eggs. While they do not pose any kind of real threat, Lewis says that the "bothersome" pests are only of concern when taking part in outdoor events.
