These dangerous caterpillars have eaten up almost all the leaves on a ‘’Jambula’’ or ‘’Jambolan tree which is just very near the wards, others have sneaked in to the hospital and some have entered the water tanks.

Some patients are in total fear after seeing the worm-like insects sneaking in to the babies’ ward saying their newly born babies’ might get injured by these toxic caterpillars.
