Not sure if my Google search was correct so I'm asking the GS. Are these caterpillars poisonous??

Didn't realize that's what that is. I've got one on my tree.

Some of the worst pain I have endured was when I was a teenager and got stung by a asp.

Don't let that thing get on your neck or other tender places. Had one fall out of a tree in my front yard this year and hit me on the side of my neck. Thought I had been branded for sure.

You need to get to killin and retreating

They sting BAD

One of the docs I work for said when she was a kid that her friend picked one up and rubbed it across her lip (don't ask me why) and said it was soft, split second later she was in severe pain

Those are stinging caterpillars, but not asps. Asps are very thick, with no tufts like those have, all of them suck though.

I've never been stung by the one on your bow, but they might sting. I do not believe it is an ASP though. My above post is what I know as an asp and they hurt like the dickens!!!

I had no clue what they were called till now but I was hunting a ground blind a few years ago and my face started stinging extremely bad and I couldn't get it to go away. I finally took a picture and saw how red it was. While looking a the picture I noticed a white fuzzy on my neck. Went from my cheek to my neck, stung the whole way. I'm not sure why I couldn't feel it walking on me. Kill it with fire.

Got down and checked camera on my way out this morning and nearly stuck my hand on one right after posting on here about one in my tree.
