Moths

6921.         Hi, we put Cedar Mulch in our yard a week ago and now we are finding these moths on exterior walls around windows and hundreds of them inside the house. Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Canada

Number 6921. These are moths in the family Noctuidae of a type whose larvae often are called cutworms. Those can be quite destructive in a garden but the moths themselves are harmless. Click here for an example.
