The moth numbers remain low, although, there was a slight increase yesterday with 15 moths 8 species including a Semirelict Underwing moth in the bait trap. There were 12 moths of 9 species in the traps today. This included 4 micro moths. I'm still seeing a number of White-Specks (Mythimna unipuncta), Mouse Moths (Amphipyra tragopoginis), Garden Cutworms (fishia discors) and Maple Spanworms (Ennomos magnaria).  In addition to this I just found an Olive Green Cutworm (Dargida procincta) outside my back door.  The photograph below was taken last year.
