What? A FALL caterpillar!

These black and orange caterpillars are everywhere.

Orange-Striped Oak Worm

We had to look them up and discovered they are the Orange-Striped Oak Worms (Anisota senatoria). They feed on oak trees, which we certainly have many of in our neighborhood. Because it’s always dry in the fall, it’s hard to notice that the leaves are dropping from these caterpillars eating them.

But we certainly notice the caterpillars dropping!


Drop us a nut to find!
