Stinging Asp

Fuzzy, slow, brown/white
December 6, 2009
We found this little bug on the wall of our entry way. At first we thought it was a mud-dauber hole but then it was in a different spot the next day. It moves extremely slow.

Hi Joe,
This is the stinging caterpillar of the Southern Flannel Moth, Megalopyge opercularis, and it is called an Asp.
