In this manner, where do catalpa worms come from?
Catalpa Worm Distribution and Habitat Catalpa worms can be found throughout the entire eastern side of the U.S. from Texas to the Atlantic Ocean. They can live as far north as New York, but typically the population is concentrated in the southern states.
One may also ask, are catalpa worms poisonous? Ok, if you already know it is a catalpa worm, then it is NOT poisonous, OR venomous. 'Poisonous' means something is toxic if it is ingested (eaten). 'Venomous' means its bite or sting is dangerous. Catalpa worms eat ONLY catalpa, so it won't eat if it is not on that tree.
Moreover, when can you find catalpa worms?
They remain in the soil all winter long and emerge as adults in the spring, around May. When new caterpillars appear depends on when females lay their eggs. Usually it is as soon as they emerge.
