Where have my moths gone?

Moth numbers have plummeted here, the last two nights have seen less than 40 moths in the trap each night for just 15 or so species overall.
I did have a Cloaked Carpet, so all is not lost, but dismal and depressing numbers. I hope some rain will perk things up a bit.

  1. I can't explain your lack of moths, Jane, there were plenty here at the back end of last week, even if most of them were grass moths. Cloaked Carpet must have made up for the lack of other species, though. I doubt whether the rain we had last night would have perked them up, more likely to have washed them away!
