Hi, its me and I’m back to talk about bugs. Today we will talk about the insect above, the salt marsh moth. I like it because it looks like they have fur on their backs. And long striped antenna.
I read they can be found year-round in Texas. As a caterpillar they look really fuzzy brown. They like to eat weeds that are plants. And also some vegetables. The female moth can lay around 400-1200 eggs in clusters. How does she do that?
Has anyone else ever seen this moth? Have you seen the egg clusters?
