Re: NYers beware: tent caterpillars


My preferred method for removing tent caterpillars is to remove the entire tent. I either cut off the branch it is on, if it has minimal cosmetic impact, or take a long stick and use it to snag and remove the tent. In either case, I normally put it on the burn pile and destroy.

Yikes! I found 4 infestations of tent caterpillars in my small yard. Is
there an epidemic this year or something??? I caught two of them just as the
caterpillars were starting to leave the tent, and the only thing I had on hand
in the way of pesticide was wasp spray. It seemed to stop them in their
tracks. I hope I nipped it in the bud.
