Moths, well known for eating clothes if you leave clothes around gathering dust where moths can get in. yummy. Well here’s a good use, as researchers have helped solve the problem of how to get rid of shoping bags and packaging with a moth with a taste for plastic. The lavae of the greater wax moth is hated by beekeepers across eruope because it fees on beeswax but recently discovered to enjoy munching on plastic too. Discovered by Federica Bertocchini, abeekeeper and scientist in spain, noticed the wax works liking plastic while removing them from hives.
