These weeny little caterpillars are Milkweed Tussock moth eggs, and larvae, as confirmed on BAMONA. They begin at Day 1, Day 2 you could see spots, day 3, they turned white and another critter dropped some eggs beside them! Totally decimating the plant, they work leaf-by-leaf, leaving their droppings underneath on the leaf.
