Down in the south tip of Texas we see Snouts by the millions! There are times during the year that they are so abundant flying over the highways that often times folks have to pull over to scrap them from the grill because the vehicle heats up! Best to have a full windshield wiper reservoir too!

The caterpillars can quickly defoliate a spiny hackberry tree. One tree can have thousands of caterpillars happily munching away. It's pretty to see so many empty chrysalids lit by the sun!
