Entomological Notice for the Month of October



Notes, Drollery


Entomology, Animal Behaviour

    Describes the typical October locations of a range of insects including moths, spiders, flies, and butterflies. For example, notes that 'the common moth is now to be met with in muffs and tippets that have been laid by for the winter' and 'flies have quitted the kitchens, and gone to Brighton for the benefit of the sea-air'. Advises the entomologist to 'secure his grubs for the winter' and expects he will 'eventually obtain his desert'.
