The past few days I have noticed LOTS of these little caterpillars. Today while we were playing in the yard I had the kids "catching "them" and we would see who caught the most! The caterpillars were easy to catch as they were climbing the fence and on the porch. They caught a lot 100+ and I am letting them die. Yes, I know love your animals all God's creatures, but I am trying to grow a garden and have trees that are in need of help, so I have opted to save the plants and sacrifice the 100's of caterpillars. The kids especially the girls had a good time catching them.
