Beautiful caterbug, Gabe, what does he grow into?j
Hello Jesika, long time no chat? How have you been? I saw on TV tonight that you guys got a big dump of more snow, it’ amazing! I’ll send you some heat. OK I have no idea what caterbug this is but I should try and look it up. I don’t think I’ve seen this one before in my garden. It was eating on the Boston Ivy.
Gabe :) xx

Hey there Chrissy, why thank you girlfriend! I found this little fella on the Boston Ivy and thought I should get a shot before something ate it. There’s about 3-4 caterpillars that I’ve seen, have no idea what type but I should try and look it up.

Great find and capture. Do they eat all the grape leaves?
Hi Bunny, this one is eating my Boston Ivy which I suppose is also called ornamental grape. Yes it tends to like the older leaves.
