I live in San Diego, CA & have been finding these guys in & outside of my home. I’ve also been seeing a bunch of moths in the pantry & would rather not have these guys in the house at least. My name is Raid & they started appearing mid June. Thanks for any info you guys can provide!
This looks like a sunflower moth caterpillar (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae; Homoeosoma sp. – see http://tinyurl.com/jzw9b2o for an example. They feed primarily on sunflowers and other members of the family Asteraceae. They are accidental intruders indoors and will do no damage there. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV
