    Yes, that's bad.

    Moths are quite cool really.

    It's best to wait for it to fly into a candle.

    They are not evil, they are merely smaller creatures than you or I. What right do we have to kill them?

    I usually catch them in a plastic bag and then release them in the morning (if they survive) - gives them a fighting chance - I hate moth season.

    I've made a cover for my window that allows the air in and helps keep the moths out.

    I used those plastic grid people use for cross stitching patterns on to, got it from a hobby craft shop, however the moths try and get in through the gaps in the edges.

    Yes, lets not fight. I just think that it's terrible to kill things when they have done nothing to you. For god's sake, why not just catch them with a tissue and put them outside? :rolleyes:

    I hate them! They just fly round your head and you can never catch them, just spend ages trying to swat them with a magazine or something! I can't sleep if there's one in my room, I'm paranoid it'll land on me in the night! :nervous:

    Only two things freak me out. Needles. And moths. hate the bastards. I cant get to sleep if they've been in my room because i know there will be more. Best thing to do is put a tea candle out on the side, turn lights off and wait, and then its like little burning planes hehe. Or chase them round with a deodorant can and a lighter.

    Bastard things.

    Oh, and rise and shine, you really should'nt take it so seriously. Ever stood on an ant? eradicated nits from your hair? stood on a dustmite?

    Its all part of the food chain in my view. If killing animals was something bad, then why do many other species do it?

    Mainly for food, but no one can tell them to stop killing each other, can they?

    No. We humans shouldn't kill things unnecessarily. How can we set standards for animals?

    so then, youre sugesting [sp..?] that we should all fly around, not touch the floor at all, avoid even the smallest fly etc, to avoid killing any dust mites etc? and stop kids from having nits removed from their hair?

    Lol! No, not at all, i'm suggesting that when we see moths or fly's or spiders etc. we do not kill them, we simply put them outside or something.
