Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I saw two this past month. First one was a little black at the head and the rest was brown and the one yesterday was more than 1/3 black in the front, less than a 1/3 brown in the middle and short black on the tail. Winter!
Found one yesterday. Head was black rest was brown. NYS
I'll be back in Wisconsin next week. I'll keep an eye out.
they make great cookies. had a neighbor in Ca that always let me come over and pick a bunch. I would mash them and freeze it til I was ready to make the cookies.
Otherwise, I think there would be fuzzy little brown and black bristles in the cookies (or white bristles if you live near Kay in Vancouver). But, then again I don't know what Earthwalker in Australia does with her "little blighters." ~~
I saw my first of the year 2 days ago.. one was all black and the other had black on each end.. so not sure what the weather is going to be here, had such a mild winter last year..
We used to see them in the fall in Michigan. One year when my youngest DS was little, he came to me with one on his arm and wanted me to take care of it. I told him it was ok because it was a caterpillar and it wouldn't hurt him. Well, I was so wrong because as soon as I told him that, it bit him. Needless to say that shook my DS faith in my judgment. I had never heard of such a thing happening. Now that my DH and I live in Florida, we never see the wooly creatures.
