Thank you for the image of a caterpillar, sometimes called a "worm." It is the larva (youngster) of a moth. It eats leaves.

If you only have one, any potential "problem" is solved.

If you found it indoors, it probably hitchhiked on a person, pet, or clothing. Discard it outdoors.

If you have more questions, please ask when you reply to this email.
