I Microwaved A Moth And I’m Not Even Sorry
Here's what happened…
I put my dinner in the microwave to reheat it for a minute. When the bell dinged, I opened the door and a moth flew out. IT WAS STILL ALIVE!
First of all, how did the moth get in there. Secondly and much more disturbing, how could that stupid bug survive being nuked at 100 °C? I was shocked!
So, I googled "how to kill moths." Obviously, being heated at a high temperature in a microwave doesn't work. Hundreds of articles came up about the various ways to get rid of these so-called pantry bugs. I won't bore you with the details.
Instead, I found some interesting facts about moths. You'll be able to impress all your friends with this useless knowledge.
- Many adult moths don't even eat. Its sole life purpose is to mate and lay eggs.
- Male moths have an amazing superpower: They can smell a female more than 7 miles away.
- Some people eat moths. It sounds pretty gross, but I'll try not to judge. Supposedly, they're packed with protein and healthy fats.
Moth tacos, anyone?
