Episode 124 - Tom Knezick flies solo in a new feature called the Secret Tapes.  Tom goes out in the field for a Moth Night with Blaine Rothhauser, Bill Young, and Steve Knezick.  Why Moths?  First, they're pretty cool.  Second, they are a great reflection of the health of your habitat.  There are thousands of different types of moths, and while many are generalist feeding species, some are specialists.  Certain moths will only feed as caterpillars on walnuts, or cottonwoods, or another single genus.  This means that the presence of certain moths mean that you have certain species of plants in the area.  It was an awesome night with awesome friends, and we know you're sure to enjoy the conversation. Music by RJ Comer.
