    Browntail moth caterpillar

    They're the color of a dead leaf, with some white silk wrapped around it. They're actually quite dry inside, but the caterpillars themselves certainly have moisture in them. Now that I think about it more, though, neither the leaf nor the caterpillars need to actually burn. Simply punching...

    Browntail moth caterpillar

    Hi everyone! I'm a new member here, I don't know anything about lasers, and I'm actually just here asking for advice on a very strange and limited subject. I live in rural Mid-Coast Maine, and in the past few years we've had a horrible infestation of browntail moth caterpillars. They defoliate...
