What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Dear bugman,
We found four of these bugs in Southern New Jersey on August 13 on a Burning Bush (it was not actually on fire, thats the name of the bush)! Whats that bug? Please reply if it is not too much trouble!

Hi Josh and Lindsey
These are Saddleback Caterpillars, Sibine stimulea. Handle with care since those are stinging spines that will cause local irritation, but no lasting effects.
