I found these in my vegetable garden on a small unidentified grayish blue fuzzy plant. Each in its separate web-like tent. I have never had a problem describing then finding a photo of an insect on Google until now. What is it? Destroy or save? Thanks!!!
This is an exciting find and you should definitely save and protect it.
That is the caterpillar of the American Painted Lady butterfly.
Thanks SO much!! Now I can find the images on Google.. That is definitely IT!! Growing a native garden is paying off. :)
