Where does this thousands of flying moths came from? Maybe its 6 o clock in the afternoon when the day bids goodbye for the night is coming, lots of small moths arrived and began circling the light bulb inside our home. Thousands of them just flying and circling the light. All the bulbs were attacked by the moths. The biggest problem is how to eliminate them. Because I don't have insect repeller at that time so I just put water in small basin and tried to trap them in the water. But there were too many that even half were not caught. I put green leaves below the light to no avail. What we did was to lights off and wait till the moths transferred to other lights. After 20 minutes or so, there were few moths in the bulb. Have you experienced this?

Sometimes that happens. I used a plastic bag coated with oil and hang them near the light. It managed to trap them. If there's just too much, I'll turn off the lights and wait about 15 minutes. Most of the time they leave.

That's what we did, turning off the lights and after 15 minutes we light it on again

Haapens all the time. Mostly in bright places. Try a light with lesser capacitance

We have many moths in summer circling the outdoor lights, but not many make it inside the house.

It's so happen that we have an open window so the moth can easily go inside.
