Catalpa worms, I got 430 put in the freezer yesterday. 50 to the bag in 5 bags, 80 in one bag and 100 in the last. They are a little tough after freezing but to fix that you take a large kitchen match and poke their head through the other end. After you thaw them of course. that also puts the flavor on the outside. huh
First ones I've had on my trees in over 15 yrs.

Doak, how big are these catalpa worms?  It sounds like they are huge.  Tell the story about them, what do they do on the trees?  Have a wonderful day, best of our life.  Cindi

   Hi Cindi,

We have them here also.  My neighbor has a tree on our property line.  This years freeze nailed the ones that were on it but last year I had a few that were about three inches long.  My older son has two very large trees in his front yard that is covered normally, but again, this year killed from freeze as they are out early from the warm winter.  Then of course the Easter freeze.

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

i posted a query about these worms before sice fiashing is my passion. My catawlpa doesn't seem to have any. Just wanted to try them since they are reveared for sunfishing. Not they are hard to catch.

Cindi, they feed on the leaves of this tree and this tree only.

Doak, I have done some studying on this moth.  I find it intriguing when there is only one species of plant that a specific species of "predator" feeds upon.  I cannot say anymore than it is very very interesting.  I love to learn about all the weird and wonderful "things" in our lives.  Our forum is wonderful for that.  Have this wonderful day, holding it in the palm of our hands, to do so, what we will.  Cindi
