Tent caterpillars are moth larvae in the Lasiocampidae family. They gather in large social groups and build silken tents or mats for protection, to regulate their body temperatures in sunny or shady compartments, and to mark gathering and feeding sites.
The caterpillars leave the tent more frequently as they grow. They use scent trails, like ants, to find their way back after foraging.
