Caterpillar Issue in Fort Mac.

My previous post was about how cranky I’m feeling today.

At least I don’t have thousands of caterpillars crawling all over my house like this person. 🙂

    Brings back memories of the plague that struck the area in ’88; Canadian tire had their record sales in snow shovels that summer. Hope they don’t make it here. They are in some towns west of us, just as bad, from what I hear. Ahhhh… they have us surrounded.

  6. Sirdar says:

    Like Dawn, I remember the ’89 infestation well. I hear they are coming from the west. Hope they don’t make it this far.

  7. Debbie says:

    Eegad, Dawn & Sirdar. Coming from the west!!! Ug!

  9. Steffi says:

    Wow…Debbie,what´s happend!I never before see so much caterpillar!That´s really terrible!!

  10. MaryP says:

    Okay, all you westerners seem to know just exactly what you’re seeing here. Me, I’m mystified. What kind of caterpillar are they? Where did they come from? Why do they swarm on buildings?

    And most importantly: When will they LEAVE??

    **cringe** I’m squirming just looking at the pictures. Back in middle school, the same creepy crawlers used to infest the trees behind the cafeteria and they’d crawl into the cafeteria during lunch….eeewww.

  12. Emily says:

    Holy crap. That makes my skin crawl!

  13. mjd says:

    Oh, my, caterpillars are fine in the tens, but in the millions… Sheesh, No, Thank You. It looks like they are taking over the world.

  14. dawn says:

    They are called tent caterpillars (don’t know the Latin name); I think they become moths and they eat leaves off virtually everything, they swarm everything (ie hydroplane on highway, shovel walk, darken windows), because in these situations, they are everywhere. They leave when they finish eating all the leaves. They can kill plants and even trees this way.

  15. Carla says:

    That is unbelievable!!! It would totally give me the heebie jeebies. Yuck!

  16. Robyn says:

    I remember those back in the 80’s too – it was really bad on my parents’ acreage and I think I pretty much spent the entire summer indoors because they were everywhere!

  17. Emma in Canada says:

    It’s hard to believe something so ugly can become so beautiful. Still, I’d be pouring boiling water all over them.

  18. Heather says:

    NASTY!!!!! I hate anything that does that! I’d be spraying that thing with whatever I could find to kill them… maybe pay the kids per caterpillar!!!
    But by the looks of these pictures I’d go broke!

  19. Heather says:

    I had to comment I had nightmares about these caterpillars…it reminds me of Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom….

  20. Joy T. says:

    No Way! I’ve heard they think this area is going to be bad this year but I’m hoping they’re wrong. Sorry, butterflies or not I’d be putting something on them to get rid of them. Out here where I am we’re all worried about that blasted pine beetle that’s supposedly making it’s way into Alberta. Never ending to what we have to worry about.
