Dealing with Caterpillars: The weather this year has been favorable for both tent caterpillars and cankerworms and infestations are being noticed throughout town. As well as being a nuisance, they can cause severe damage to the trees they live in. Banding is the most effective way to stop them from infesting a tree. Once an infestation has occurred, trimming and burning the branches and worms may solve the problem or trees may be sprayed with insecticides such as DiPel or BTK. Click for more information on Tent Caterpillers or Cankerworms.
