Ok since I can't post in the 194 thread, since I'm the current last poster, I'll post it here, the moths look like they're gone for good, as the caulk seems to be working, I did have two bugs this morning in the small bathroom, but the only way they could have gotten in was through one of the 2 window screens in the front room, the last rain may have washed away the spray I had on there, so I sprayed one of the screens and closed the other window, I'll see if that deters the bugs from coming in or not, as there is no food or water in here for them.

Oh and the last rain cleaned My car off almost totally.

Edit: I did see 1 moth, it was smaller, seems the cracks above the closet storage shelf may be allowing them in still, so in the morning, I'll need to use the step ladder to caulk those cracks, it does seem a bit cooler in there tonight though.

It'll be nice to get a 12000btu window mounted a/c unit, as I keep having to turn off the swamp cooler as the neighbors car exhaust gets sucked into the house here, at least whenever She starts it up to go somewhere or when She comes home, it smells of unburned gas, Her car won't get smogged for at least 2 years, as it's a 2005-2010 KIA Optima LX and according to Her it uses a lot of gas, She just doesn't have time currently to fix it, but then She's a Mom to Her 3 kids.

Even though Raccoons have no facial muscles to move expressions like we do, it is marvellous how a camera shot can show such emotions. Just like my posted picture a little back

After having sealed the upper part of the closet against anymore moths and entry/exit by any heat, tried to do the lower left hand corner again, I found that I could only get the upper 1/3rd of the corner done, seems I've used up another whole tube, good thing I bought 2 tubes last time, but since My hand is hurting a bit, I'll start on the last or 4th tube on Sunday and I didn't see any moths since I went to bed last night...

The closet has another clothes moth in it, so I sealed up the last crack that adjoins the exterior wall with the 4th tube, the moth shouldn't last too long, it hasn't gotten out into the bedroom, I'm hoping I don't need to caulk the other two corners of the closet, I didn't smooth out the caulk at the ceiling on the exterior wall, hopefully that won't be a problem. I hoping there will be no more moths...

I saw no flies when I was fishing for mackerel 2 or 3 miles out along the North coast of Cornwall, just lots of grey and blacked backed gulls ...

Pay attention Vic! Flies do the backstroke in your soup, moths do the butterfly stroke in drinks!

Sorry I had no idea, for all I knew the moth was looking to upgrade to a V8...
