Are Caterpillars Poisonous?

Answer

Caterpillars are poisonous especially when you come in contact with their poisonous hairs that contain powerful toxins. The bristles can blow off in the wind and cause painful skin and throat rashes, irritation to eyes, vomiting, dizziness and fever if you come into contact with them. Warmer and milder winters enable greater numbers of caterpillars to survive.
