Gillian Eadie’s dying caterpillars

If anyone can offer suggestions as to what this might be, please post in the forum in the appropriate thread.

help please for sick caterpillars

This is a sample from yesterday morning. Looking at the ‘almost dead’ one, there might be a bite in the middle?

But there isn’t anything so obvious on the smaller ones. The dead one still on the tree almost looks as if he has had liposuction.

I’d appreciate your guidance. I’ve taken the plants out of the house and have them in the direct morning sun now – I’ll chase any wasps I see!
