Question of the Week – Peanut Monument on Interstate 75 in Ashburn

Posted by romeethredge on September 28, 2013

The peanut monument in Ashburn Georgia was pictured in last week’s edition.  It was erected in 1975. It’s right on interstate 75 , so it is a good advertisement for peanuts and helps to let folks know that south Georgia is peanut country. Scott Utley, County Agent in Turner county where the monument resides, answered this question right away.

This week I have another question for you. I had several of these lovely caterpillars brought into me for identification. They were feeding on citrus tree leaves. Can you tell me what it is and what it changes into?

    They are orange dog catepillars and will turn into swallowtail butterflies.
