Dogwood Invaders Invasive? - Macremphytus tarsatus

Dogwood Invaders Invasive? - Macremphytus tarsatus
Cumberland County, Maine, USA
August 11, 2012
Size: 2 cm 2 1/2 cm long
These catepillars apparently just stripped our recently planted dogwood species. Do we spray them with ugly chemicals or let them move "on"?
Thank you folks, we really appreciate the work that you do!

Dogwood Sawfly - Macremphytus tarsatus
Looks similar to this one . To my best knowledge they just damage the leaves and the plant survives, but I an no expert; perhaps someone can advise further.
