Front half

This is the front half of one of many tent caterpillars that have been crawling up our patio screens. None of the neighbors' yards have any trees with tents in them so I assume they are blowing in from a nearby tree somewhere, with the past few days being windy. I just keep knocking them down and squashing them.


  1. why must you squash them? Do you enjoy seeing the greenish yellow goo come out?

    I don't think I have ever seen any over here.

  2. What would you like me to do with them? Catch them and bring them to your yard? If I don't kill them they will simply crawl back up the screen. Not sure where they think they are going; probably just programmed to go up.
