Their smell reminds Devon Granger of a bait truck. And when she runs them over with her car, the sound makes her think of popcorn, popping. Granger is talking about the caterpillars. That’s right. Millions of caterpillars have invaded Blue Hill, Maine for the last few weeks, eating everything on their path and even triggering a statewide traffic advisory for slippery conditions. Millions of the fuzzy little
beasts have flooded Mines Road between Second and Third ponds for the last few weeks or so. It has created such a hazard that state officials have placed an electronic sign in the area and posted a statewide traffic advisory warning motorists to go slow in the slippery conditions lest they have an accident.
