Protect your trees, shrubs and ornamental plants from caterpillars
Caterpillars have been a major defoliator of ornamental trees in recent years. We use an integrated approach to managing insects and diseases to keep your plants healthy.
The major defoliator of trees in recent years has been the winter moth caterpillar. They are small and green and emerge in the spring to feed on various trees such as oaks, maples and blueberries. In the winter, these are the moths you see all over your house or in your headlights from around Thanksgiving through December.
We can also help control other defoliators such as gypsy moth and sawfly. All indications point to gypsy moths possibly making a comeback this spring, the time to start planning ahead is now. The time to start treatments is weather dependent but usually around the beginning of April.
