Interesting, I just went for a walk in the forest with spray bottle in hand 
and by far the biggest bunches of tent catapillars were on wild choke 
cherries, which are having a good bloom just now, and the adjacent 
saskatoons look like a good crop....If i beat the birds AND the catapillars 
to them.
A previous post mentioned army catapillars.....I believe they're one and the 
same. Mn. Del    where, for some reason the canada geese are flying all 
around in a V today, and just landed 200 deet out our window, beautiful!
