Default Hickory Tussock Moth caterpillars

These things have been invading my property. I just killed a dozen climbing the side of my house and have killed numerous ones on the grass/driveway etc.
Pretty little fuzzy white things with black tipped hairs that if touched, will secrete a poison onto you. Nasty stuff. Said to be migrating from Canada and they devour deciduous trees.

Ignored, but I saw two early this morning.

Inform visitors and kids. The hollow black tufts have the most venom, but the white fuzz is also poisonous. Expect a rash!
