I was pleased to see some Hummingbird HM's on GW last night buzzing round those Buddlejas! Hope my cuttings have taken so I can have a good few of my own!
Hello - I'm not Nut, so I hope you and she don't mind me popping in here to suggest Death Watch Beetle - watch this and listen to the knocking http://www.arkive.org/death-watch-beetle/xestobium-rufovillosum/video-09a.html
I used to be involved with the renovation of old timber properties and the identification of DWB holes and activity
DWBs only do their tapping (to attract a mate) in the spring, usually April/May - would that tally with yours?
We always reckoned that DWB was much better to have in a building than woodworm - woodworm spreads much much quicker!
Not one I've ever had to deal with fortunately, I live in a wooden house
Hummingbird HMs love lavender.
Eek you really want one of those in your garden
Kill it with fire I'd say not that I would ..
but I'd definitly wouldn't want one of those on my plants .. gah.. *shivers*
Ceratostigma is a favourite for the HBHM here, the shrubby one, willmottianum? or something like that.
What are you referring to, Belgian?
..just bringing up this old thread as I have another moth to identify...nutcutlet and others were good enough to put me in the picture previously.... this is probably another Silver Y but might it be something else instead....please...? thank you...
That's a something else Salino
