Could anyone please identify this caterpillar for me?   It is made up of a yellow stripe with a grey stripe underneath with red dots in it.  It is hairy and it was feeding on my plum tree. Two caterpillars were found on the


Victoria Plum tree.

Growth on Victoria Plum tree

I have a Victoria Plum in a pot on the patio, it is in good health, provided first plums last year and is carrying plenty of young plums now.  However, it seems to have a thick stubby growth developing - not like a new shoot, but like a wart on the side of the tree.  Does anyone know what this is and how to deal with it?
