They are found on the leaves of the trees in the summer.They are found in size from eggs to near 3 inches max.They eat the leaves.When they mature,they crawl to soft,loamy soil,dig in,and turn into a pupa,which turns into a butterfly,which lays the eggs.They will also leave the tree,when all the leaves are eaten.peewee-williams.
