The destructive caterpillar

In the picture is a caterpillar that is hairy. It is a voracious eater. There’s about 7 of them that ravaged the young leaves of my apple sapling. It was saddening to see the sapling with no leaves at the end of the branches and twigs.

The hairy caterpillar is toxic to the skin so I do not touch it. I just shake the branch so the caterpillar will fall on the ground and I would step on it. Now it is the time to make a research on how to drive away those pesky insects.
