|Moths are interested in finding suitable places to lay their eggs. If your plants will make good banquets for the moth's offspring she will lay her eggs on them. When the eggs hatch the larvae will begin to feed on the leaves. Since there's no way to deter the moths you'll need to be on the lookout for the larvae. If you find caterpillars feeding on your plants you can control them with Bt which is sold as Thuricide or Dipel. It targets caterpillars and will control them right away.
