can be found across the eastern U.S. and north to Canada, stretching west to about Kansas or so. Their populations have begun to decrease in recent years,
especially in Canada, as many of the males are attracted to bright streetlights and other light byproducts
of cities, and cannot leave these areas due to the light in order to mate and produce offspring. The female Lunas do not fly
until they have mated, relying on the pheremones that they produce to attract the males. As previously stated, however, the
males are often unable to escape the attraction of the bright city lights, thus making mating impossible. In the less urban
areas of the eastern United States, however, Luna Moths continue to thrive.

sweet gums, and willows. The adults do not feed.
