Death's head intercepted

Death's head hawk moths have been ambushed at the US border. According to this US report the moths attack tomatoes, potatoes and sneak into hives to steal honey.

The moths came from the UK -- brought in as pets -- where its pupae are traded on the Internet. I can't say I've seen them bothering my hives.
