Save Our Woolies!


If you live in the Midwest, or other locales where winter has wimped out, please remember to look out for the brown and black banded wooly bear caterpillars. Unseasonably warm weather is waking up these sweet little critters and sending them out in search of food. Since there's no greenery available they will starve. It's so simple to save a little life! If you see some wandering, just carefully scoop them up, place them in an un-burped food storage container and put them into the crisper section of your fridge. It's not necessary to poke holes as too much air will cause them to dry out. When spring arrives, place them outside close to water and fresh leaves.
