found these cattepillars in my garden today and want to find out what pest species they are? Any help would be great! Thanks :)
No interactions present.
Not really a pest as the tree will remain unscathed. They have an intriguing defence mechanism and will produce a droplet of red fluid from their mouth parts if disturbed. Sawflies are not the best recorded group - if you look at the NBN Gateway map there are very few records, with none mapped for Devon.
