Moth and other insects during National Moth Week July 22-30, 2023

We at Allen Acres, Pitkin, La will have our 15 250 watt mercury vapor lights over sheets on during National Moth Week (July 22-30, 2023) and all are invited. WE have recorded almost 1000 moths species and more than 500 other insect species including a number of long horn beetles. Hope to also have a butterfly count one of the days and some local fieldtrips during the days. WE do have a B and B ( but you are welcome to participate from other locations.
