Most of the time I communicate with you about the insect world, I am telling you not to worry about them. Attached is a photograph of the puss caterpillar, DO NOT TOUCH IT! The “hairs” are actually spines that break off and have a venom gland at the base. The symptoms can range from burning skin to convulsions. I found one today crawling up the outside front window glass of the bookstore.
