Actually I moved my rigs into the garage and two days later one of my rigs is off in the morning. It wouldn't post. I take it apart to find a moth stuck on the pins on the underside. Board is being sent back to be rma'd now. Hopefully warranty will take care of it...

Ouch man.
This confirms my fears! I've got mine cased up now. There's still quite a few gaps but hopefully it's well enough protected. I need a USB bug zapper..

If my post helped, I'll happily accept a few bitmills!   15rGg6A1JFZV3b7TTbtpAaiYGdUD1e1oAm

If you're really *that* concerned... get some cheap screen and 1x1 wood moulding at the hardware store and make a screened box to put over your rig.  It's probably $5-$10 in materials for one rig.

+1 This is the best solution for peace of mind / cost.

To live is the rarest thing in the world, most people simply exist.

If a spider could live in the hideous vacuum and temperatures inside my cases, I'd feel obliged to let it stay there.

Having read through a lot of it, I recommend you take almost all of what you read on this forum in jest.
