2nd and 3rd March 2012 ... Garden traps

2nd March ... Overnight min. temp. 6.6 deg, calm, light mist
3rd March ... Overnight min. temp. 4.8 deg, slight breeze, mostly clear.
The mist on Friday killed off any prospect of a good catch. Moths will fly in the rain, I've often seen them in the car headlights on a rainy night and indeed had them in the traps, but they seem to avoid mist and fog like the plague.
