  6. This doesn't tell you how to get rid of moths.  We have thousands of them here this time of year.  Every time you open a door at night 50 of them will fly in  If you crack a window open they find a way in through the gap between the sliding window and stationary window.  They're everywhere dive bombing us every night.

  7. That answered NONE of my questions. Ugh, howcast sucks. I rarely get the information I need from these guys. I think they don't know what they're doing. Or they're misleading us. Whatever it is, I'm sure they're not misleading me on purpose. Maybe a few classes on information is needed with these guys.
