Caterpillars are back! The tents can be any size at this time of year ~

Tent caterpillar development is occurring very unevenly this year in the county.
Some groups have already defoliated entire trees, others are just getting started.
Some of this difference is due to how much direct sunlight there is on the tents.
Take a careful look at your trees, particularly if you have birches - that seems to be a favorite this year!
Also look at willows, alders, laurel, roses, and a few fruit tree varieties, particularly apple trees!
We're ready to help! Call or email for fast, friendly,& knowledgeable service!
