Red headed Azaelea caterpillar. They are harmless to you but will wipe out plants. Seven or carbaryl should knock them out. The one in your pic is fairly far along in its life cycle so you may need a little extra juice to take them out.

Just an update for everyone. I went to a nursery and this is what they suggested I use. The guy claimed it replaced 7 dust which I'm not sure is true or not. Anyways, worked like a charm. Had caterpillars coming out the woodwork and dying a slow pain ful death. Even murdered some wasp that I didn't even know I had until they crawled out and croaked.
