I wrote about this pest in my latest Duchess of Dirt column in the June 8th edition of the Comox Valley Record newspaper.
This blog article is a follow-up with more information and more photos.

Identifying moths can be tricky. Mainly because they look so very different from their caterpillar larval stage. Add in colour variations in their wings differing from region to region to region…plus the lack of information both in book form and on the Internet…and well, it is a tough job putting the correct name on your specimen.
Yet…this can be a very important piece of data for the very health of your garden. Mainly because these adult moth forms will give you a clue whether your garden could be facing a pest infestation as soon as the eggs hatch.
