Orange dog caterpillars

This is new. We planted an orange tree a few months ago. I have seven oranges on it right now! Well, there's a new resident - actually about 8 have been found so far. They are these caterpillars. They eat the leaves and can severely damage a young tree. The thing is they turn into swallowtail butterflies. I'm going to have to keep a close eye on this.
