Seen in strawberry crowns the past couple of days. 90+F & 60-70 rh doesn't help; anybody ID these critters (~ 1 cm long) & what can safely be used to knock them down but not affect safe eating of fruit?

In my neck of the woods, we would call them tent catapillars. My experience has been that they leave as fast as they arrive.
