Woolly Bear Hatchlings

Dear dbarber,
These appear to be newly hatched Tiger Moth Caterpillars, commonly called Woolly Bears.  The female moth often lays her eggs on the side of a building or other structure.  We cannot say for certain if our identification is correct, but we have a strong suspicion we are right.  The images we have linked to are not of a Texas species, but eggs and hatchlings of many Tiger Moths look similar.

Thanks that look’s like what it is i have been seeing these on my house for years and never knew what it was I do see those moths around my house all the time there’s one on my screen door right now. Thanks for the information
