Recently I noticed that some of my plants look like something was munching on them. Well, there was a hungry hungry caterpillar living among my window boxes. He scared the bejeebers out of me when I found him ascending my curtains. I'm not sure what type of caterpillar this is or how it got into my window boxes which are behind a screen, but he was really big, close to about three inches. As much as I like wildlife and nature I decided that having him in the apartment wasn't the best idea. Simon liberated him to the outside world.
Upon looking him up I discovered that this is a yellow stripe army worm. They turn into a brown moth and the larva can do serious damage to plants. I only found one so hopefully he is by himself.
