I found out what they are, Thai know then as Buung Haan, a small catapiller that shoots its toxic hairs into the air when threatened. The end result is a very itcy rash on all exposed skin. The girl has rubbed in tubes of creams and is now on pills, the cure has taken about a week. The catapiller feeds from the mango tree having grown from minute eggs. No it will not put me off from coming , but the trees will go.

But fresh mangos are delicious! And you can fry the caterpillars in garlic for a little protein!
