Didn't the article say if they have no orange band they're just an entirely different species?

There are a zillion of these on my farm.

I never knew that thing about the colors though.

And every now and then you see one that is all black and you say that means were going to have winter all winter severe!... Thats another moth, said Park.

I am not sure if he meant another species or he meant myth. I would think if it was a different species he would have mentioned it's name.

My old riding instructor was nearly always right in predicting winter weather by how the insects were hibernating or should it be sheltering for the forthcoming weather?
