Caterpillars take over the lowcountry | News
BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC)- It's looking
like Halloween in South Carolina with large web like sacks showing up on trees.
The Forestry Commission says they have gotten a number of calls from residents
but do not be worried, they are just caterpillars.
They say the
caterpillars make the web like creations so they can eat the leaves inside the
web. The caterpillars are often found on ash, birch, blackgum, maple and oak trees,
but they prefer cherry trees. Once they are done eating, there is little to no
damage to the trees.
