Any idea what’s going on here people ??? 
 

Hedgerow at the side of a busy 30mph and footpath, never seen nothing like it before and only on the last/end section of the hedge…

Moth caterpillar webs, not as bad as a room infested with spider mite webs when you have to vacuum the plants 🕸️😳

Yep - caterpillars :thumbs:

 

You might find something interesting in there.

 ............ I found this little fella at work a couple of weeks ago - it's a Puss moth. It gets it's name because it's face is cat like.

It's normally bought in clones, that's why you should always quarantine them.Cause a lot of trouble in the UK, I once saw an attic getting fogged to kill off spider mites, we went outside and it looked like the roof was on fire with smoke leaking out everywhere 😳😩

Invasive caterpillars they weave that for safety while they eat underneath it , getting common here in Dorset , it’s shame farmers don’t torch them it would stop them spreading .

I'm not sure that it would have much of an effect mate - there's a growing section of folk that are keeping and breeding furry moths as pets/an interest.

There's some mental stuff out there mate......... we had an Elephant Hawk moth larvae in the garden a few years ago - it was a horrible looking thing and, I didn't know what it was at the time but, it produces a very cool moth :thumbs:
