The title is a literal one: the social issues documentary Weapons of Moth Destruction travels behind the scenes of the Light Brown Apple Moth (LBAM) infestation that hit central and southern California in the late 2000s, and investigates the means by which USDA officials obtained governmental permission to destroy the critters with synthetic pheromones - igniting a firestorm of controversy in the process.
