Creatures of the Night: Blacklighting for Moths
Walk through a meadow during the day and you will see countless butterflies, bees, and other insects flying around. But what happens after the sun goes down? Join former Goodwin Naturalist, Juan Sanchez, in observing the insects that take over under the cover of darkness. We’ll give a brief introduction to the types of insects you’re likely to encounter at night and then head outside where we’ll be using lights to find and attract some of the thousands of species of insects that call Connecticut home. Bring insect repellent and a small flashlight.
