'Panic' as Moths Swarm House in Oklahoma

A woman in Forgan, Oklahoma, had the unpleasant experience of waking with a moth on her face recently, only to find a massive swarm of the nocturnal critters both inside and outside her house.

Video taken by Tatum Radcliff on Tuesday, May 16, shows the air thick with moths outside her door, and many of them crawling up her windows.

Speaking to Storyful, Radcliff said they’ve always had moths around their property, but never this many.

“I woke up to a moth on my face and immediately panicked,” she said. “When I got up there were hundreds in our house and I thought a door was left open. Then I went to look outside and that is when I realized they had swarmed our house.”

“They have been here for a day and are still here,” Radcliff said on Wednesday. Credit: Tatum Radcliff via Storyful
