We found that exact same caterpiller on our driveway.


Most of our blog's traffic between July and October comes from people googling the phrase "fuzzy yellow caterpillar". Using our site stats I'm sure someone could come up with an animated map charting the sightings of this cute bug.

found one in my driveway. I'm thinking about raising it to see the moth. Hopefully I can figure out what to feed it!


lol that is what directed me here...;) thanks!


Maybe this what I saw today (Harrison County, IA) but I don't recall the black hairs. This year has been a bumper crop of centipedes invading the pation and basement. Every year has been something different. First year it was grasshoppers. Second year crickets, etc.


Ha, that's what brought me here! I saw one in Central Park this morning.


Friday July 13, Found one crawling on the foundation of the house, Very cool looking.


Found one here today in NJ. And here I was thinking I was preserving the future of a wonderful butterfly. NOPE, GUESS NOT. (I'd feel terrible if I had killed it, anyway)

To bad it's a moth...It would make a beautiful yellow butterfly. I have one playing ping-pong between railing posts today from Warne, NC.

Provo, Utah today

I posted a video of the caterpillar I saw today



We have one we found about a month ago and put it n a container and it is now a cacoon but it has not hatched yet..how long does it take to hatch? Toronto,Ontario


Seems the length of time in the cocoon depends on temperature. If the insect is warm it'll emerge after three or four weeks. But if it thinks winter has come it'll wait until spring. Generally their life cycle is faster in the south and slower in the north.


Fuzzy Yellow Caterpillar found in Wellsville Utah! There were so many!! We put 5 in a jar to take to school on Monday and show the class!
