Upsetting, but interesting.  Can you ID them and post it?

Hey Lucky
I just go to an office supply store and get the 1/4" rubber bands. They do a
good job for me.
Also...grafted about 30 persimmons so far this spring and am having a
caterpillar problem. They climb up the stock and eat the emerging buds from
the scion.
I never saw anything take place like this before. It makes for an upsetting
Anyone have any tips on how to stop this?
