A young woman rollerblading on the MRG this week had one of these caterpillars drop from a tree and down her shirt. The bristles caused a stinging sensation and turned into a burning rash. (As if Covid-19 and murder hornets aren’t enough!) Unfortunately, she tried to brush the burning away, which further embedded the bristles. She has since learned that applying tape to draw the bristles out is a better solution!) With this caterpillar – look but don’t touch!

These caterpillars need to shed their “skin” – I wonder if that is what was happening? http://thomasburg-walks.blogspot.com/2006/09/american-dagger-moth-caterpillar.html
