If it's not currently playing at your house, feel free to stop by here and I'll furnish the popcorn. :lol: My wife hates them.

Sorry to hear that. The last couple years we've had a bumper crop of Crane flies; they're everywhere! Ugh!

Stanton, If you want to "trade" crane flies for miller moths, I'm sure my wife will want some extra loot thrown in. :lol:

Are these moths the ones I see on tv flying around in Omaha at the college World Series?

Thomas, I haven't watched the College World Series, but here's a picture from CSU. Image Life size is about 1" in length.

Not familar with these critters. But like Thomas said, there is an abundance of something similar at the CWS.

Don, It's an annual event, they are around for about two weeks, die after 1-2 days.

I can attest to the moths (Miller Moths most call them) being horrible around here, kind of like the love bug down south, just a real nuisance. They come in this time of year and are literally everywhere.
