The article reports on the attack of the moths in the House and Senate in the U.S. The moths flapped along the paintings and around the ceilings of the House and Senate sides. It is also reported that there were dead moths discovered outside the Capitol steps. Donald Davis, a research entomologist for the Smithsonian, needed to examine the specimens to identify whether the plague of moths was part of an outbreak.
