help identify this moth
Hi, I photographed this moth in my backyard yesterday, 7-5-05. Could you please help me with identification? Any help would be greatly appreciated. We live in Laingsburg, MI if that is any help geographically. Thanks again,
Kevin Dutil

Hi Kevin,
This is the second Squash Vine Borer, Melittia satyriniformis, we received in two days. The larvae bore into squash and pumpkin stems and kill the plants.
