Howdy Tim, I have read your report in the weekend's Canberra Times, and have been concerned about the recent-times disappearance of most Bogon Moths(and most other moths, esp. large species)for 'the same number of years that I coincidentally 'found' - whilst working in E-Toxicology @ RMIT University(Melb'), THAT there is a range of chemicals exhausted from vehicles and airplanes, mainly benzen-o-compound toxins, which have been known and scientifically-proven(since 1901, published German Author-Scientist), as being cumulatively-toxic once they are absorbed/land-on 'soft-bodied biota' - which includes the eggs and larvae(of moths e.g.) on vegetation, or on the ground; these chemicals, of which there are some 20 listed(even in 1901) have been ignored by western lawyers and most-ever since the writing of (all the) western Narcotics Acts(1961 AUstralia e.g.)- since the action of the toxins like benzeno-s' is actually narcotic; they are environmental narcotics (='E-Narcotic toxins') but the federal government WILL NOT TAKE the classification//the need for listing them separately-at all seriously.
