I have these fuzzy looking worm guys hanging on fuzzy looking leaves on my zinnias. I've had many zinnias before and I've never dealt with these. I have many zinnias around the house and I believe that's the only one. Anyone seen these before and know what to do. Really respect ya'll's advice. If you need better pics I'll be happy to go take another. But I think I will be going out there to at least pick them off. I'll try to put them in something in case I need to identify them.
Thanks, Kim

I would keep them picked off and put them in a pale of soapy water. Every caterpillar you pick off you stop thousands from being produced in the future. They don't bite and are harmless to people.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
