Everything you didn’t know about Bogong moths and never thought you would

By che - 31 October 2005 8

The Parliamentary Library has put out this report on the Bogong moth. So next time you see a white wall turned brown or get freaked out when a big furry moth attacks you in the shower you can be enlightened as to why they are visiting our lovely city.

What’s Your opinion?

Perhaps those moths have had their feelers in some of that good parliament house coke?

Nope. I just thought they tasted somewhat like almonds, or some kind of nut.

Nice to see that the Parliamentary Library has such important things to do.

Hey Thumper, I’ve just had a bowlful of these things for dinner tonight (including the wings for extra crunchiness) – and man, they make you TRULY HIGH! Ever noticed that?

Put said moths in pan, heat pan, they fry in their own fat.

yum, except for the wings which you break away before eating….

Delicious when fried in coconut oil, with a fine sprinkling of lemon juice on top. More please.

They are quite bad around the parliamentary triangle area (because of parliament house). I rarely see any out at Gungahlin (even the moths won’t live there!).
