A highly social and destructive insect, I understand it was introduced into the USA as a possible substitute for the silk worm. That failed and it is now endemic. Originally it had no natural predators, and destroyed trees during bad outbreaks. However, I am told that some fungi have adapted and now keep the creature in check.
