Hello everyone.

After working very long days this week,
I left early today and picked up some cheese enchiladas on the way home.

It rained earlier, but the sun has come out, low in the sky now, but pretty.

Take care, everyone, and have a lovely rest of the day.

News Room / For Jane: Massive Atlas Moth Found In The United States For The First Time
« Last post by Steve on August 19, 2022, 07:01:50 PM »

Massive atlas moth found in the United States for the first time

                       

The Washington State Department of Agriculture said a massive moth spotted on a resident's garage was identified as the first atlas moth ever documented in the United States.

The department said a University of Washington professor snapped photos when he spotted the gargantuan moth perched on the exterior wall of his Bellevue garage July 7, and state officials examined the photos and confirmed the insect was an atlas moth, one of the world's largest species of moth.

Atlas moths are native to the tropics and have never been documented in the United States.

"This is a 'gee-whiz' type of insect because it is so large," Sven Spichiger, the agriculture department's managing entomologist, said in a news release. "Even if you aren't on the lookout for insects, this is the type that people get their phones out and take a picture of -- they are that striking."

Researchers said they are now trying to determine if the moth is part of a population in Washington. They are asking anyone who spots a similar insect to report it to pestprogram@agr.wa.gov.

"We hope residents will help us learn if this was a one-off escapee or whether there might indeed be a population in the area," the department said.
