Well, having forgotten everything I knew about these guys, did a
Google search and found a good page with info. and images of eggs,
caterpillars and cocoons:


It also reminded me they like persimmon, walnut and sweetgum leaves;
all 3 of which trees we've got....maybe there is a use for those

Thought I'd post this so y'all can keep an eye out for the
caterpillars, etc. and not squash them:-)
