Hi Krista! Girl I don't know what they are either, but us in the Dallas Area have been invaded by them!! IT's been on tv and the newpaper. They chew the heck out of foliage!!!! I used Lemon joy and hot sauce ( Louisianna Red as a matter of fact )2 TBLE spoons each
in a 1liter spray bottle fill with water and shake! and get to spraying on top and underleaves and they went away for a long time . But after the last rain we had everyone at work came in last Monday sceaming THEY"REEEEE BAAAAAAAAAACK! So this weekend I did the same thing~ spray early in the morning before the sun hits the plants. I got tired of making the oneliter size and made a gallon and took the sprayer out of the bottle and put in the gallon jug.. I went thru 4 gallons spraying eveything including my porch and patio.. they cling to everything!! A guy at work said they are dropping from the trees cuz we had soooo much rain this spring and early summer!!
Nope I didn't see them in Luis's Link.. I'm surprised Luis didn't mention they were seen in Hurst as that's not far from me! Lucky Luis!!!!
