“A Florida insect expert said caterpillar infestations have been ‘extra heavy” this year, with many residents calling to complain.

Jane Morse, a University of Florida extension agent based in Pinellas County, said she has been ‘inundated with calls’ about this year’s ‘extra heavy’ presence of caterpillars, the Tampa (Fla.) Tribune reported Tuesday.”


Caterpillars don’t bit or sting, and they’re kind of cute. I can’t believe that people are complaining about caterpillars, don’t t hey know that they will turn into beautiful butterflies?

The city where I live is infested with stink bugs, now that’s something to complain about. Folks who are up in arms over caterpillars need to get a grip.

Turn on the TV and watch coverage of the unrest in the Middle East and the unfolding tragedy in Japan. Don’t sweat the small stuff!
