White-lined Sphinx Moths
During a nocturnal GNG species review a few weeks ago, we were surprised at how many White-lined Sphinx moths were seen during the evening. Over two-dozens of these large, beautiful moths were attracted to our UV light sheets. Seeing all of these adults was a sign that the garden would soon be filled with sphinx moth larvae.
As expected, primrose leaves are now beginning to vanish as the sphinx moth larvae eat away, and nothing could make us happier.
