They're Here!

Yes, they’ve arrived at ONEC Rowing! Voracious gypsy moth caterpillars are munching through trees and bushes at our waterfront. The caterpillars also like exploring shells and boat covers, swimming in the enclosed area off the ramp, hanging out on the dock, and hitchhiking a ride on the Ottawa River on a rigger. No reports yet of mishaps on seat tracks, but it’s only a matter of time!

Attack of the gypsy moth Caterpillars. One of the most destructive pests of hardwood trees in the world.

They also seem to love tagging along for rows.

(Love the cover photo. Great book)
