|I need some help because I'm finding conflicting information. I have Primroses planted in window boxes and they are doing well. When watering them, these moths come scurrying out.
I am reading that some moths help pollinate. But then I'm also reading that some moths lay eggs and after hatching, the caterpillars will chew down my leaves and kill the plant.
I want to get a handle on this while I can. Any advice or thoughts? If I don't want them, how can I best remedy this issue?
(Extra info that might be important....I'm in Billings, Montana. Moths are about 3/4- 1 inch long. Just noticed them last week.)

The one on the left resembles Noctua pronuba. Is it fairly large and does it have orangey underwings?
