The Life of Animals | Moth | Moths, and particularly Their caterpillars, are a major agricultural pest in many parts of the world. In temperate climates, the codling moth Causes extensive damage, ESPECIALLY to fruit farms. In tropical and subtropical climates, the diamondback moth (Plutella xylostella) is Perhaps the most serious pest of crops brassicaceous. Several moths in the family Tineidae are commonly regarded as pests Because Their larvae eat fabric Such as clothes and blankets made from natural proteinaceous fibers Such as wool or silk.

Some moths are farmed. The most notable of these is the Silkworm, the larva of the domesticated moth Bombyx mori. Not all silk is produced by Bombyx mori. There are Several species of Saturniidae That Their are also farmed for silk, Such as the Ailanthus moth (Samia cynthia group of species), the Chinese Oak Silkmoth (Antheraea pernyi), the Assam Silkmoth (Antheraea assamensis), and the Japanese Silk Moth ( Antheraea yamamai).

Despite being notorious for eating clothing, most moth adults do not eat at all. Most like the Luna, Polyphemus, Atlas, Prometheus, Cercropia, and other large moths do not have mouths. When They do eat, moths will of drink nectar. Moths frequently Appear to circle artificial lights, although the reason for this behavior Remains unknown. One hypothesis advanced to explain this behavior Is that moths use a technique of celestial navigation Called the transverse orientation.

The moth instinctively attempts to correct by turning toward the light, Causing airborne moths to come plummeting downwards, and resulting in a spiral flight path That gets closer and closer to the light source Often nocturnal insectivores feed on moths these include some bats, some species of Owls and other species of birds. Eaten by moths are also some species of lizards, cats, dogs, rodents, and some bears. Moth larvae are vulnerable to being parasitized by Ichneumonidae. That there is evidence of ultrasound in the range emitted by bats flying moths Causes to the make evasive maneuvers Because bats eat moths. Tiger moths emit clicks the which also foil bats' echolocation.
