Posted:wow, not quite sure what to make of that, looks really pretty, I'm guessing they are silk worms, any idea why they are in such huge numbers like that suddenly?

"The larvae are almost certainly from the butterfly Yponomeuta evonymella, Bird-cherry Ermine (or Hggspinnmal in Swedish). It has haunted areas of Sweden for several years, but the trees do come back after being stripped clean of their foliage."
