In an article in Yahoo News, a woman makes an unusual discovery after she hears a dull tapping sound on her doors and windows.
It all started with a dull tapping on the woman's windows. She lived in a farmhouse in Tasmania, Australia.
Initially, she thought there was someone at the door because the tapping was quite loud.
“I thought there was someone at the door. They were hitting up against the glass quite hard,”
She decided to let it go until the sounds escalated two weeks ago. It was then that she decided to open the door and see what was really causing the sound.
She was in for a surprise.
The woman found dozens of moths clinging to her glass door. There were actually hundreds of moths in the room.
“I left my window ajar in there. I think maybe I left my light on, but I don’t recall doing so,” “That night we’d had a huge number of them up against our windows and doors trying to get in.”
Although the woman had lived in the area for years, this was the first time she had seen so many moths.
Tasmania's moths are quite special and scientists are attempting to document all the 1000 species of moths.
They advise that if anyone comes across large numbers of moths in their home, the best solution is to leave them alone and they will disappear by themselves.
The lifetime of a moth can be between a few days to a few weeks.
