Moth experts estimate there are at least 100,000 more species of moths yet to be discovered, and some suggest that the true number of moths is as high as half a million.
Like butterflies and bees, moths are hard-working night shift workers of Earth's pollination industry. By the time bees, butterflies, and birds have fled home at nightfall, the moths will begin their shifts, nibbling on the pollen, spreading the pollen from plant to tree in a graceful manner.
Moths are masters of camouflage, the moths Uropyia meticulodina, moths of the family Notodontidae have the ability to transform themselves into a curled dry leaf to spectacularly hide from predators. Their camouflage skills are ranked among the masters of the animal world. It is the complex camouflage ability of moths that has helped scientists determine what camouflage means for the animal world. However, moth enthusiasts use a number of tricks to lure moths closer. First, many moths will glow at night, so you can start by observing the moths that visit your porch light. To see a greater diversity of moth species in your area, try using a black light and receiver, or even a mercury vapor lamp. Some moths may not be able to light up but can't resist a mix of fermented sweets. You can create a special moth-attracting recipe using ripe bananas, molasses, and stale beer.
