    Just what Russia needs, another disease vector.

    When a bloodsucking moth bites a fruit-eating moth, does the fruit-eater become vampiric too?

    Thanks a lot, Ivan. :grumpy:
    Moths used to be one of the few types of bugs that I wasn't scared of. If this escalation of my phobia prompts the need for medication, I'm sending you my pharmacy bill.
