Hairy caterpillars - Orgyia antiqua

Hairy caterpillars - Orgyia antiqua
Moretown, Washington County, Vermont, USA
August 19, 2018
Size: approx. 1"
I was gone for a week and came home to find these caterpillars all over our once beautiful bush! What are they, and how did they appear so suddenly? There small white sacks(?) are on the back of some of the leaves. Can't remember the name of the bush, but it has reddish green leaves .
