Insects - Tent Catarpillers

What eats Tent Catapillers, are there any Natural Preditors for them in my area?

Wildlife Expert - Ken Burton

Tent caterpillars have few natural enemies because their hairs make them unpalatable. A few birds eat them but the only ones that really specialize on them are cuckoos, which have been all but extirpated from Washington. They are parasitized by some flies and wasps.
