Tent Caterpillar

As a child I used to see a lot of cocoons in trees, but not so much anymore.  Is that a good or bad thing?  Who knows but I suspect it is not good as this may mean that there are fewer and fewer of these worms.

Entered for this weeks Daily Post Photo Challenge: Transient since the cocoons do not las long.  Here today gone tomorrow (few weeks)

Thanks for visiting!

  1. I don’t know where you are, but they used to spray a lot for gypsy moths along the east coast. I can’t imagine that the pesticides would just kill the gypsy moth and not the tent catepillars (along with other insects).

  2. Tent caterpillars have boom and bust population cycles: some years they are very few and others very many. Must confess that I’m not a big fan.
    At least in this part of the world they are doing just fine.
