I need help. My sister found this on her doorstep yesterday.
Thanks for sending these great images of a pair of Luna Moths. The male is the individual on the left with the more feathery antennae. Like other Giant Silkmoths, Luna Moths do not feed as adults, and when a female emerges, she has only a few days to mate and lay eggs. She releases pheromones, and the male is able to detect her presence, often from many miles away, because his antennae are sensory organs that can sense the pheromones.
Thank you for your response. I really do appreciate it. Have a great day
