It's Miller Moth season again, and there are about ninety-seven billion in my house alone. (figures may not be scientifically accurate.)

But they're really slow, completely harmless and kinda cute, so I've been practicing my Jedi/ninja/wizard skills and catching them without crushing them and throwing them outside, where they've atl east got a chance at survival. Pictures for those of you missing out on the fun: fav.me/d1ridww fav.me/dng1ye and fav.me/du90ie (may not be the exact species, but that's about what they look like.

Calm downCrescent-S-Moon  They're not the evil ones like back in Hawaii.

I've done seventeen today alone, but still no giant eagle.

Goddam eagles, never showing up on time.
This is why Boromir died.
They could have FLOWN the dang ring to Mordor.

Gaaaah! Boromir's death... damn, now I'm crying again.......
Sadest part in the books (even though there isn't much time spent on it) and in the movies.

So true, but what's the fun in making it so simple? where's the adventure... and the deaths... ='( BOROMIR!! WHY DID YOU HAVE TO DIE!?

Ah, bugs. They're starting to get freaking everywhere. :stare:

Once my brother smacked a fly right across the room with a flyswatter. He's was pretending it was a tennies racket, and then SPLAT! Fly gets smacked into a wall and dies.

Miller Moths are especially good at getting into crevices that they should theoretically not fit in.
They like my windows in particular. Every time I open them in the morning, two dozen fly out of the joints.

The neighbors have complained about me shouting "Fly My Pretties!!" whenever I open the windows or the garage.

Yay!
I had a spider in my room earlier, but the small buddy crossed the line when he went down from the ceiling to my desk, so I had to take him out.

Just the ones with way too many long legs or the bright orange poisonous ones?
I had a dorm-mate who kept a particularly impressive specimen of the former as a pet.
It would eat out of her hands.

They're not poisonous, if it makes you feel better.
I actually think they're pretty cool...

I know that they aren't they just freak me out, because they show up in large numbers.

We used to have a cat that used to eat them like popcorn.

My cats used to as well, but they both died about two years ago.
Maybe we should get a new one.

GLAAAAAHHHHHHHHRGH I HATE MILLER MOTHS! They give me the heebie jeebies, but I don't kill them. I usher them outside. Or rather, make the husband usher them outside.

I personally think they're adorable, but I also think the same thing about vampire bats and squid.
Good job on letting them out though!

HAHA! Awesome! I wish I had a pet one. But my mom absolutely hates moths and kills them "accidentally."

They don't make very good pets, seeing as they're always trying to escape and die very quickly.
But really, your mom could leave them alone.

Yeah... Still would be cool, though.
Grr. Do you know of any song that in the bridge or something goes like "I was made for more than this. I was made to feel your kiss. ______ _______ throw it all away!" Something like that. It's driving me crazy. I think it was in a movie. I could have sworn it was Beastly, but I'm not sure.
