what are these little guys? I've cut the effected branch off of my cherry tree. They were wrapped in a web....I'm curious to know what they are...Thanks for your help!

probably larvae instead of caterpillars? probably not good at any rate?
Social Pear Sawfly.
ahh. perfect. thanks. so i get rid of them then>? can i just put them some where like on the compost heap? not mad keen on killing things
As the link says, there is no real need to do anything unless the tree is very small, in which case simply remove the affected part.
ok great. it is a very small tree. ive already cut the branch off. they can go enjoy themselves in the compost...
thanks for your help.
or you could put them on the bird table and let the birds get a feed.
i'll let them take their chances...
