Beware of moths when refueling?

This happened to my buddy yesterday and he had to drain his tank and pull the pump off to get lil bastard out. Today, it happened to me except it flew out of my tank.

They are apparently nesting in the fuel nozzle at the gas pumps and when you pull the lever they come flying out and either fly out of the tank or if you're unlucky end up in the fuel unable to get out.
