So, in spite of how much I love the natural world, I'm really sick and tired of watching these forest tent caterpillars defoliate trees. On the SLU campus this summer they are abundant, and appear to be feeding on oak, ash, and maple species in particular. Yuck, yuck, yuck. Let the socially-transmitted virus that knocks them back arrive and thrive!
Yuck indeed! For anyone wanting more info, check out this article we shared last year: https://www.natureupnorth.org/justmynature/paul-j-hetzler/tents-infesta…
