Notes:

I found these on a leaf on my high bush blueberry bush today. It looks like they are only on one leaf but another leaf has been blackened by them. What are they and what should I do? Are they the start of those yellow striped caterpillars? Thanks for your help.

    Walter recognized them as the dreaded yellow striped caterpillars and recommended spraying with some b.t.

    I cannot make out any detail of your photo except the “skeletonized” area of the leaf. My best guess would be a group of caterpillars referred to as skeletonizers. When googling blueberry skeletonizers I find this http://bugguide.net/node/view/741888/bgimage I would guess an insecticidal soap would take care of them.
