Sighting Record 1132330

Observation Notes: 
I opened my front door, this morning to find this moth. I went outside & there are some eggs, too. There are spiders & I've seen a very large one on my screen door, before. I'm concerned about the spider getting the moth &, also, about where the eggs have been laid. Can I move them from the screen door? If so, where do they need to be relocated to?
