Tussock Moth Caterpillar

We don’t have much milkweed around here (something I am working on). Milkweed has a hard enough time and this little one isn’t helping matters at all. Tussock Moth Caterpillars will eat an entire milkweed plant, taking it away from our very special Monarch Caterpillars. The Tussocks will also eat dog bane so they can gently be relocated.
