On dialup, it would take me about 20 minutes to view that site. :(

- hmm... a nice paella pan, a little butter, some garlic and chopped shallots, a half-pound of larvae, and i see...
- some GOOD EATS!
Today's lesson: Never trust a penguin with a paella pan. ;)

Dude...who in their right mind lets tent caterpillars get that far out of control? That's crazy.

Those are like scenes from a horror movie. Now I'm all itchy.
I would rather walk in a spider web that those things:eek:

Ick, horrid flashbacks of SE Michigan during the tent caterpillar/gypsy moth epidemic of the late 70's/early 80's. I grew up with woods behind our backyard. It was awful. Those are darned aggressive bugs in those pics.

Where's the flamethrower when you really need it?

For a slideshow here (http://user.it.uu.se/~svens/larverna/00-narmare_och_narmare_1-normal-split.html)
Also it says "Day the caterpillar arrived at Flogsta" in Swedish, so it didn't take long at all (would you leave your bike to get slowly taken over?)

i'd take a weed wacker to that or just some gas and a few matchs

I think Raid sold out that day.
That link is the best horror movie I've seen in a while. Talk about the willies, yuck, gross, nasty. I might have to abandon my bike (car, house, family, leg, arm, etc...) were that to happen. Where did I put the flame thrower and DDT canisters again?

When I was 12, the boy I ran with found an tent caterpillar nest just about ready to hatch, a metal garbage can, lighter fluid, and a box of matches, and only shared it with me - none of his other (i.e. boy) friends. <sigh> So romantic.

I'd love to hear the whole story behind what is going on there.
I feel like those things are crawling all over me.
