There are many different types of moths. They come from the same order as the butterfly. Usually nocturnal, they are strangely attracted to light. You may have seen them flying around your outside light or perched on a screen at night because a light is on in your house. It is believed that they use the moon to navigate, but other light simply serves to confuse them.
