We dont have anything like this, but its what the opossum is doing over here with our trees and they also kill our native bird life. all countries have something that is distructive to the plant life, I hope that you dont get anymore, a nasty little catepiller by the sounds of it. thanks for sharing image and onfo.

They are not good to have around ,they eat all the foliage off the trees and if they eat them to many seasons it will wipe your trees right out. They have been a problem like the last 10 years in Maine but not so many in recent years. So far this is the only nest I have seen here this year.

Really nice photo of the Caterpillar nest. I have never seen these before. Why do you need to destroy there nest and then burn them? There so cute and they don't make much noise LOL..
