Observation notes: I have never seen this many moths on this building. There were plenty of these moths on the rear and right side of the building where it appears that lights were on during the night hours. I counted about 16 on the rear and about 25 on the right side. I included a picture of both sides but, if it's a problem please let me know. Thanks.
