Not entirely sure people are as alarmed about this as I am, but ew. Pandemics, killer hornets and now giant moths? Haven't we been through enough?!

An Atlas moth (world's largest) was spotted on the back steps of Seattle, or I guess maybe it'd be the side window. Bellevue. I mean Bellevue! The moth, normally found in the woods of Asia, was discovered on a homeowners garage in Bellevue.

Imagine that. Coming out of your house (wow, you own a house here) and you see a moth the size of your hand...I don't know about you, but I'm not getting as close as the people in these pictures.
