This was an interesting bug I found last night in my bedroom I live in Indiana and it is in its 80s right now and very humid.

Dear Savannah,
This pretty little moth is an Ailanthus Webworm.  The caterpillars of this native species have adapted to feeding on the leaves of the invasive, introduced Tree of Heaven,
Ailanthus altissima.
