Well, we had a few warm days for early march, even saw some grasshoppers oustide. Saw this thing on why house. My first thought was “How does that even work?”

Dear Caleb,
This distinctive insect is a Plume Moth in the family Pterophoridae, but we are not certain of the species.
  The wings form the top bar of the letter T, and we frequently get requests to identify T-Bugs.

  1. A question rather than a comment guys. Do you know how many plume moths are coloured rather than just white or grey as most seem to be?
