This week, have you noticed this particular type of caterpillar crawling on everything outdoors? They are of different sizes, presumably at different ages. If one looks closely, they actually are quiet pretty, with a series of seemingly blue-aqua eyes lower to the ground.
Does anyone know what type of caterpillars they are, and if they are so prevalent this spring due to the mild winter we had?
Maybe someone from the University of Missouri Extension team will know what they are, and if they turn into a moth or butterfly.
