A site dedicated to a homemade garden Moth Trap and the amazing contents found within. My interest was sparked in 2009 by my then 4 year old son, Louie. He and his sister Keely help me in the mornings, photographing and releasing the contents of this Bedfordshire trap. I hope you enjoy the Blog!

Spruce & Grey Pine- the final solution?
The top image looks to be a Grey Pine Carpet, the wing is generally plainer towards the outer edge and the central band is much narrower. This gives the 3 segments on each wing a much rounder look.
This is a Spruce Carpet (trapped on 09/10), the central band is much broader giving the segments a triangular look. The rear of the wing is clearly marked with an extra band just inside the outer edge and is more striking in appearance.............I think?
