One of the many reasons to #leavetheleaves this fall... "If you want to see Luna Moths in your yard, here’s the best thing you can do this autumn. Rather than burning your leaves or mulching them with your lawnmower, gently blow or rake the leaves into a garden bed in your yard or spread them out in a wild space. This will give the cocoon a safe place to overwinter and, who knows, you just might see a Luna Moth in your yard next spring."
Help stop the spread of this invasive aquatic plant.
