Holy crap look at the huge moth I found in the garden. 3 inches at least from head to bottom. Maybe a sphinx? Not sure.

Oh terrific - a tomato horn worm moth.  Curt's going to 'relocate it' down the road.  Sure is pretty but a tomato horn worm can eat half a plant in a night.
 
Oh crap. I have a moth phobia...going to rinse my brain out with Lysol now to get rid of this nightmare image. K thx bai.
 
killit! Killit!! Kill it with FIRE!
 
MY YARNS SHUDDER IN FEAR.
 
BABBY MOTHMAN!  D:

Stupid Moth Tricks:  Find an old ultrasonic TV remote.  Go outside at night to where moths are flying around a light.  Click the remote.  A lot of moths will drop to the ground like rocks or fly (more) goofily around.  They have a survival instinct to drop or veer wildly when they detect bat echolocation.  The remote sounds a bit like bats, apparently. 

THE MORE YOU KNOW!
 
There's a saying in HI that the moths are a symbol of deceased relatives. It's funny how we'd get them more often during a family get-together.
 
Sorry, didn't realize there was someone with a moth phobia.  I find those weird - why just moths and not butterflies too?
 
Oh, I hate butterflies too +Kate Childers ! It's their fluttering that gets me, I think.
