Catalpa Worms: Are they out now?
Just curious what parts of the year Catalpas can be gathered. I am going back to Oklahoma for a couple of days next week and would love to gather some up and bring em back with me to AZ, that is, if I can find any this time of year.

Here in NC they are almost gone. I think earlier in the year you would have found more but I'm not sure about OK.

I've noticed a few on my tree in the last week or two, but they're fewer and farther between than the last infestation (a month or two ago).

Here is a link I found from Virginia Tech about catalpas.
There are two generations in Virginia, but some years a partial third is seen. The second generation is usually larger and in "good" years the caterpillars can cause defoliation at the end of the summer.

I just had some hit one of my trees, but they were gone so fast I didnt get any. There didnt seem to be as many as the last time they were on the tree.
