Re: NYers beware: tent caterpillars

I wish the birds and other creatures in my yard were that ambitious.   The 
caterpillars would have my trees knawed down to the branches before the  birds 
figured out they were there.  I live in a suburban neighborhood and  around 
here the birds like to have their food handed to them in a pretty bird  feeder.

Why spray? If you break open the tent a bit, the birds and  other creatures
will get them. I even had a parade of hornets carry off  every one a few
years ago. And if the tent itself offends you, it's easy  just to cut it off
of the branch.

No point in poisoning beneficial  insects and other critters just to get rid
of  'em.
