Moths struggling with light addiction

LIGHT addiction is leaving thousands of moths unable live normal lives.

New research has found that moths are particularly unable to resist street lamps as they get totally fucked up on the spectrum of wavelengths.

Moth Tom Booker said: “The feeling I get from light is like a warm, immersive bath. My wings are soft and weightless, like I’m floating, and all my worries are gone.

“I know I should be off mating or getting food but I just can’t stop myself going near glowing things.

“When I’m basking in electric light everything is amazing. But then it gets switched off and I feel cold inside, I need more light but I don’t know where to get it.

“I just want someone to lock me in a pitch dark room for a couple of week so I can get on top of this.”

Leopard moth Roy Hobbs recently completed a period of ‘dark turkey’ during which he was buried underground in a matchbox.

He said: “I’m ok right now but it’s one day at a time.

“Some of my friends are still like ‘hey, let’s go into town and hit some bulbs’ but I’m into more positive things now, like mating and getting tangled up in net curtains.”
