What is This!
Dear Bugman,
I just heard about your site and it seems to be a perfect place to receive information on some of the strange creatures I’ve discovered around my home. Towards the end of April I discovered this caterpillar on my deck. It looks like something from Mars. What kind is it?

Hi Bob,
This is one of the Tussock Moth Caterpillars in the genus Orgyia, most probably the White Marked Tussock Moth.
