Ouch! I had zero experience with handling caterpillars until last year, because I don't know which are harmless, and which are the stinging ones. We apparently were in the middle of a migration of them. You couldn't be outside for more than a few minutes without having some crawling on you. Luckily, they were not the stinging type.

KC - that's good info. Thanks.
