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.

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.
