caterpillars on citrus


Hey y'all ! It's that time of year again and I just wanted to let ya know before spraying and plucking that this caterpillar is a FRIENDLY and HARMLESS species that actually stripped each and every leaf off of my lime tree one year BUT the tree not only survived, IT CAME BACK BUSHIER THAN EVER ! Those little guys are the babies of the Giant Swallowtail and they are fond of all citrus. I have them come back every year and they have not harmed my citrus trees at all ! So PLEASE do not kill these guys. You will love the butterflies! Thanks everyone.[ATTACH]4137 Um, I seem to be having a problem with getting more than one photo posted here ! I tried to get ya the butterfly too but was not allowed for some reason or other that totally baffles me. Anyway thanks again all!
