Bogong Moths Pictures And Facts

The Bogong moth (Agrotis Infusa) comes from the insect family Noctuidae and in the warm spring months are quite common around the Harbour Bridge, CBD of Sydney this and all over the upper and lower North Shore of Sydney. The Bogong moths are named after a mountain range on the high plains of the Australian Alps called Bogong which means big Fella in Aboriginal. During the day they tend to shelter on the shaded parts of concrete skyscrapers, hallways or subfloors of houses thinking that they're in a cave and during the night they swarm around trees in flower and all the bright lights of Sydney.

MICROPEST IS RATED

It's an amazing sight to see during the day an apartment block with its external walls dotted with thousands of Bogong moths. Micropest Pest Control Sydney out a number of times to treat common areas of apartment buildings that literally have hundreds of Bogong moths and when you open up your door to the hallway they fly all over you. At this time of year it is best to keep all the windows closed and if you are unfortunate enough to get a Bogong moth infestation a light spray on the walls and floors with a synthetic pyrethrum is enough to rectify the issue. Generally speaking the Bogong moth infestation only lasts a week or two because they are only passing through on their migration to the Australian Alp's.

Most Caterpillar species feed actively during the warmer summer months, the bogan moth has evolved a different annual cycle of activity. The caterpillars are(Cut Worms) feed on herbaceous plants which occur in pastures in inland New South Wales and Queensland during the winter. At this time pasture grass areas have a higher weed population than during the summer. In early summer the moths resulting from this widespread cut worm population migrate and millions towards the Australian Alps. In years of high population levels they are often reported as being a nuisance and houses or other buildings which they invade temporarily on their journey to the mountains. These migrating individuals have large food reserves stored in their bodies, they pause on their flight's to feed at flowering trees and other plants and can often be seen swarming actively around trees in flower throughout the day as well is night. The Bogong moths at this stage of their cycle were collected by local aboriginals as food.

When the Bogong moths arrive in the mountains they gather together and form compact clusters in rock crevices, usually at heights above 5000 feet. They remain in these sites until autumn and although both males and females are to be found in the clusters, mating does not take place until the breakup and individuals fly back to the pasture areas once again. We see here a clear example of a species which has combined a two way migration and the ability to enter a period of relative inactivity, with accumulated food sources, into a cycle which is closely adapted to the appearance and cycle of development of annual plants on which the caterpillars feed.
