Description:

Whilst cycling along a green lane in the Brecon Beacons National Park in South Wales we came across a massive infestation of caterpillars which had completely stripped many of the leaves of the hedge and completely coated the entire hedge with silk. The caterpillars were all very small, 1-2cm long, dark with a light banding pattern
