1k Wednesday, Destroying our trees edition

Here it is: the very hungry caterpillar. Our trees' leaves are becoming lacier by the day. When will the tree service get here to spray? Soon these stupid winter moth caterpillars will have eaten entire leaves!

They're little, but annoying. This is one on my son B-man's hand. When we're outside, the inchworms fall out of the trees on to us. I'm not sure if I'm ever going to go outside again after having caterpillars rain on me. Yuck.

Card, I feel your pain. I tell you what's funny though is those little suckers don't look big enough to do any damage. I guess if you have a hundred of them together they can eat some leaves though. We have moles - I think I would take your caterpillars any day of the week. Stupid moles.
