Puss caterpillars with sticks like the ‘annoying hot knife’ are returning across Virginia

A bizarre small insect, such as a venomous pus from walking and looking vertebrates, threatens Virginia this year, according to the state Forest Department (VDoF).

The venomous pus caterpillar is the larval form of the southern flannel moth (Mycologize auricularis), And if you find one you should stay away from it. Its “hairs” are actually vertebrates, making it one of the most venomous caterpillars in the United States. A woman in New Kent County described what happened to “a very hot knife on the outside of my calf” when she brushed against someone in the doorway of her car. According to Daily Progress.
