La Porte, Harris County, Texas, USA

Ok, here's a picture of my mystery caterpillar. I have several of these guys. They spin these little tents around themselves then proceed to eat my milkweed plants! I need to know what they are, because I have 5 monarch caterpillars right now that can really use this milkweed. I don't want to be sharing the plant with a pest! Thanks!
