caterpillar I.D.
The pics should be reversed because I see these guys going up the stucco to their “housing” after they’ve snacked. What are they? I’m in the central east coast of Florida. My Oleanders don’t look so hot now….
Thanks in advance!!

Hi Colleen,
You have Oleander Caterpillars, and they have formed Cocoons. The next phase of the metamorphosis is the emergance of the lovely Polka-Dot Wasp Moth, Syntomeida epilias. We have photos of the adult on our homepage now.
