I'm sure that's true.  They are VERY nasty in my thoughts, though.  They ate
about 100 polyphemus larvae that I had sleeved about a month ago.  Anything
that does that ends up on my black list. --Ha!  The only thing that I have done
that does help is to just not put the sleeves where the larvae were eaten
before.  A less good method, (and certainly a less satisfying one than seeing
them all die) but it does work.
