European Pine Sawfly

It isn’t often that I get excited about little critters eating my plants, but when Carol spotted these little guys I thought it was something pretty cool.  They’re some pretty boring looking little grubs individually, but the way they move as a group is pretty cool.

It turns out these are European Pine Sawflies.

They defoliated several branches on my muhgo pine before I got to the store to buy poison.  I probably should have taken care of them earlier, but they had such a cool little dance.
