This caterpiller also have hairs and glands attached to the hairs the can cause terrible alergies. Even the the exuvia (exoskeleton that juvenile insects replace in order to grow, becoming a dead tissue) can cause terrible allergies

That's gross. Does this happen every year?

They always come out this time of year, but I don't remember them being this numerous. I shouldn't complain too much though, because this is nothing compared to the seven year cicada up in DC/Maryland, though. That was like riding through a popcorn popper at times... ugh.
