sugaring for moths

W. J Holland‘s groundbreaking 1903 book The Moth Book: A Popular Guide to a Knowledge of the Moths of North America was for nearly a century the reference book on moths and the natural history of thousands of species. Holland’s description of sugaring on a sultry summer night remains a wonderful introduction to the joys of looking for moths.
