The Forest Tent Caterpillar

Top of page

Close-up camera studies illustrate the life cycle of the forest tent caterpillar and show the damage it causes annually to our deciduous forests. The film traces development from the egg-laying through larval and pupal stages to the emergence of the lackey moth, and shows how the caterpillar population is controlled by natural hazards.
