Protect your important landscape plants from caterpillars
Caterpillars had been a major defoliator of trees in years past. We use an integrated approach to monitor for and if necessary manage these pests before they cause significant damage.
The major defoliator of trees in recent years has been the Gypsy Moth caterpillar (pictured right). In 2017 alone they were able to defoliate over 923,000 acres across Massachusetts! To see a map of the damage and other information about this damaging pest, you can visit https://www.mass.gov/guides/gypsy-moth-in-massachusetts
There is also the Winter Moth caterpillar that can cause damage to your plants. 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 sawfly.
