I have a yellow twig dogwood that went from green & leafy to bare. The leaves were chewed to pieces, remaining leaves had clumps of these ugly worm/caterpillers on the back side., at least 25 on each. They are very skiny, white with a deep black u-shaped designed running down their backs & a totally yellow belly. Size about 1-2 inches. Hairless......
I sprayed them with liquid sevin & they stood up on one end then keeled over to the ground. They have a round brownish head at one end. When they die they curl up in a circle, look like mini tires.
Any idea of what they are? I live in Morris Town, NJ.
Fell on my arms as I walked by, that's how I found them..how gross! :shock:
