Your letter to the bugman:  Could you please identify this insect. I found a few (~5) in my house over a few days this summer at night around my lights. They are 1/4-3/8 inch long
How you want your letter signed:  Sfigurac


Dear Sfigurac,
This is a benign Webspinner, and sometimes winged males are attracted to lights in great numbers.

Thank you very much for the quick response.
Your information has been very informative and helpful.
Your website seems like an excellent resource which I definitely share with others.
