Argh, the itching, the itching!

The peppermint gum in the back garden is full of the little hairy caterpillers again. The honeyeaters are happy, but the gardener is not. I didn’t find out until I was half under the tree, doing battle with almost knee-high grass armed only with the hand-powered mower. I’m now covered in itchy welts where caterpillers either fell down my shirt, or prickled me through my shirt and its driving me crazy!
