Dear Bugman, what are these little guys?They were on a wall inside my house this morning. At first I thought they were ants buy they are about half the size. They appear to be some kind of worm – with legs? Until I took the picture I couldn’t see the legs at all. They weren’t really moving, except to rear up at me when I got close.

Dear Squirmy Wormies,
These are newly hatched Caterpillars, probably from the subfamily Arctiinae, the Tiger Moths. The caterpillars of Tiger Moths are frequently called Woolly Bears because of their furry appearance.
