"I would say there are a thousand or more here. I mean it's not hundreds or thousands, it's millions. There's got to be millions because I have tossed out shovels and shovels of dead ones."
-Dorothy Kuhn

A Milford woman has been fending off moths for more than a week trying everything from water buckets, honey and maple syrup to trap them, to fly paper and fly swatters.

"They just are invading. Invading my place for the last eight days," said Dorothy Kuhn.

The flying insects are inside and outside the home, hiding behind pictures, curtains and window sills.

"I would say there are a thousand or more here. I mean it's not hundreds or thousands, it's millions. There's got to be millions because I have tossed out shovels and shovels of dead ones," Kuhn said.

A University of Nebraska Entomologist says there are more moths than usual this year because they weathered the mild winter. Entomologist, Bob Wright the most prominent moths right now are Army Cut Worm Moths which are typically seen in Nebraska.

Wright says Army Cut Worm Moths will not threaten your crops.
