I’m Horny, Horny Horny Hornet

This morning after emptying my moth trap I headed over to catch up with the Melton boys at Ketton Quarry. Mark Rossell was flagging me down as I drove as the Hornet Moths were emerging. I was parked up and back out as fast as possible just in time to see another emerge from the bottom of the Poplars.

Skev decided to try out his Hornet Moth pheromone lures and we had discussed people saying they don’t really work. Well after a few minutes males from across VC55 seemed to be attracted more to Skev than the lures… what can we deduce from this? Well after a night moth-trapping, sleeping in the car and probably reading a few porn mags, Skev gives off more female Hornet Moth scent than his lures! Ding dong!
