Found this guy on the base of my red triangle, I don't think it wants to eat the palm however, after googling some of its features I found out it most likely hopes to eat all my Plumeria .
Here is a link if you have interest http://entnemdept.uf...hinx_tetrio.htm so far I have let it live. :huh:

Looks like that caterpillar is getting ready to burrow into the ground and pupate.

Give it a container with some loose dirt, and let it dig, then wait, . . .

and a moth will appear, likely a big one!

I wouldn't risk it--give it the back of the boot and then twist the heal.

I met this guy the other day who had a weird growth on his face, like I'd never seen before. I killed him. Didn't wanna risk it.
