Orange Striped Oakworms Part 2

Remember I mentioned the stripped leaves -- well -- here is a photo showing the stems that used to be leaves. Those poor little green acorns are so bare now...

Here is an orange striped oakworm in action -- chomping away on an oakleaf. There were many more out in the yard today.

I have not seen these caterpillars but then I don’t venture in the back yard often because there are so many mosquitoes and they love me. Yesterday though when I went to get some fresh basil I saw 3 caterpillars on my spearmint and they were lime green. They were pretty but too small for my camera.
