    They are known as Tent Caterpillars. I think there are a fair few sources on the web about them. They are found in the USA and usually attack trees. There are often plagues of them but I am guessing this one was something out of the ordinary. :)

    Yuk!

    As long as we don't have them over here....

    Ah - but we do!!! ;)

    This was a little colony that set up home on one of our trees (an Amalanchier) last year. They erupt beyond their usual small numbers every four years and you should report any large outbreaks to MAFF (or someone important) :D

    Small colonies like this are ok but the authorities want to stop them spreading so that we don't get problems with our bikes and trees. :D

    Yuk!

    As long as we don't have them over here....
