    As they are attracted to light, put a desk lamp right near the vents. Might draw it out.

    I can't see anything to take a photo of. And as for drawing in out..... I think I might just keep it. This MacMoth could prove to be a curious mod. Unless... Unless it's larvae mistake silicone for silk! :confused:

    The heat might end up killing it if it doesn't crawl out.

    What, it crawled into the hinge vent of your MacBook?

    Do something really intensive for a while to fry it... hehe...

    I was watching a movie and scrapping the trash when the wee guy crawled in..... I don't think he'll have stood a chance.

    Same thing happened to me; a moth crawled into my MBP hinge a while back. I was able to hook it out using a paper clip (remove the battery first; you don't want to short anything out).
