Default I just figure out how to....

..... get rid of moths....

Anyway, I sussed out a good way of eradicating them without making black
marks on the ceiling...

Mine are mostly in the kitchen as that is where the back door is..!!!

Turn all the lights off... Open the door to the microwave, making the light
come on.... Go back 10 mins later, close the microwave door... give it 1
minute..!!! :))

You'll be having those "save our moths!" campaigners walking up and
down outside your place

Did you manage to clean out all the moth residue? Or will this microwave
be dedicated to moth disposal?

I'm morbidly interested.....

Are there any sounds as the moths explode?

Or:

Use your vacuum cleaner...

it makes a strangely satisfying phump noise as they get sucked down
the nozzle )

If you want, you can do it for sport.. ) get yourself a UV light put
it near an open window and see how many you can catch in 10 minutes.
Watch out for the really big ones tho.. they can even sometimes out
match the hoover, unless you have a dyson )

If you haven't got one dedicated then you're not taking this seriously
are you?! I dunno, passing hobbyists! ;O)

Do not try this if:

1) you have a Henry; and
2) the moth is within 3ft of net curtains (or thick, woolly socks, but that
is another story...)
