Bugs Here, There, Everywhere

When I was in Ecuador, I spent one month living in what I called “The House of The Spirits.”  It was full of bugs and they drove me crazy, especially walking through the spider webs after it rained (it rained every night).  Well, here where I currently am, I am also plagued by bugs.  Some pictures to judge the bugs by.

A moth.  I have never seen so many moths as I have here in the middle of South Korea.    I do not think that Korean moths eat wool, however, as I cannot find a single Korean who has ever heard of moth balls.
