We just came back from a trip to Florida. We have a really bad gypsy moth infestation around here. It's so gross...there are tiny little black pellets everywhere....feces! Gross! Anyway, right before we left, we got rid of the ones she had in her little bug cage, so I told her she could go out and get some more. They are all over the trees and fairly big too! All of a sudden she comes in crying saying they hurt her. she has a tiny little hole in her thumb!!!!! I have her sitting on the couch with some ice and I sprayed it with some itch relief spray. What the heck????? I've never heard of this before! They were all gypsy moths back there....not other kinds.
