I'm assuming they are caterpillars? But they crawl all over my gardens whenever they want to. Here's one crawling on the porch this lovely day in PA :-D
CLOSED: Who's my Furry little friend??
Woolly Bear Caterpillar
But s-o-o-o cute when they're young, lol!!
I haven't seen these in a long time. Gran'ma used to tell me that seeing them early and in large numbers meant a long hard winter. Guess we're outta luck here again this year.....
I don't think they are BAD moths, not miller moths or meal moths. Just outdoor, part-of-the-ecosystem moths. I never knew what the woolly bear turned into. Thanks to caron for the link!
Thanks for the link caron.
I never put the Isabella tiger moth together w/ the Woolys.
We see tons of both around here but..........
BTW: The lore is the wider the brown band the shorter and milder the Winter.
There is even a festival for them in Vermilion, Ohio in early/mid October.
