  1. It is just superstition…a moth is a moth and I don’t believe in luck or superstitions..they are just old tales that people made up to make them feel better or worse in some cases.

  5. Rest assured Natalie, that it is neither good or bad. Luck is what you make it to be, based on events that occur within a timeframe relative to the event.

    It sticks in your mind so much that the related occurance just seems to be an effect of the sighting. You’ll be fine, I’m sure.

  6. It’s neither good nor bad. If you feel it has significance for you than it does. Otherwise it’s just a moth.

    If it’s not harming you in any way, why kill it?

  7. It only means that there’s more light inside than out.. Its attracted to the lights… It’s color is of no known significance to your future fate.

    Now if it were a black cat then that’s another matter altogether.

  8. The color black has traditionally been associated with bad luck (i.e. a black cat). It has also been associated with grieving and death (i.e common funeral attire). It has been used in the names of terrible events (i.e. the Black Death and the Black Plague). It has been used in sayings to denote something not so good (i.e. “They have given me a black mark.” “They have given my reputation a black eye.”) But now, because black peoples feelings may be hurt, the color black cannot be used as it traditionally has. And we should understand and embrace blacks for the good they have done for our country.

Relevant information

In many countries around the world it’s believed that black moths are bringers of death and bad luck. Many consider them as poisonous creatures that can bring sickness or even blindness to people due to the dust that their wings shed, however, it isn’t completely true; at must, this dust can only produce a slight irritation.

Black moths are part of the Eribidae family, a genus of moths that help pollinate plants and flowers, according to the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources. They eat fermented fruit juices and they normally take refuge in the shade to protect themselves from predators, which is why they are almost always found in doorways and corners of houses.

If you look at them closely enough, you can see that they are actually extremely beautiful; their wings are purple, pink and green.

In many parts of America, black moths are believed to be bringers of bad news, while in other places like the Bahamas and some Caribbean islands, they are considered bearers of good luck. In Texas, for example, it’s said that if a black moth lands on top of the doors or windows of a house, then there are chances of winning a prize or even the lottery!

Besides being a symbol of good luck, they also represent the path to the answers you have been looking for; they are known as ‘old mice’ believed to be guides that will lead you to new loves, friendships or even family relationships.

If you are having problems with someone, the appearance of a black moth is a sign that it is time for you to forgive, let go of grudges and make amends. On the other hand, they also signal new beginnings and positive changes in your life. These creatures have not been proven to be related to negative events, deaths or accidents, they are simply superstitions that have been popular for a long time and that, unfortunately, are to blame for the disappearance of thousands of their kind because they are killed or sacrificed.

So if one of these amazing creatures comes to your house and you don’t have enough confidence in the above information, don’t kill it, just give it some air and open the door or window so it can get out by itself. They don’t mean any harm, on the contrary, it will probably fill your home with good luck!
