(columbus ohio) Reminds me of a lightning bug. Very colorful, almost artistic. Probably less than one inch long. Found on my passenger window of my van.
Your insect is a moth…Ailanthus Webworm Moth.
They are found over most of eastern North America.
The adults feed on nectar of various flowers. There is one generation a year.
The caterpillars are found in webs in Ailanthus (tree of heaven) and paradise trees. The caterpillars may also feed on other deciduous trees and shrubs. The caterpillars live in communal webs.
The Ailanthus tree is not native and invasive, while the insect is native…so it has learned to like this invasive tree….a good thing!
