Alien Invaders in NJ

No not Bay Boy, but the gypsy moth.

More photos here.

These egg sacs and empty pupae shells were attached to trees clustered in a small area in New Jersey's Pine Barrens in Jackson Township. There seemed to be a pretty heavy infestation in that area, though I didn't notice much leaf damage. Perhaps a pesticide spraying program got to them in time.
