A Bad Year for Gypsy Moths
Now that gypsy moth caterpillars have hatched in Killingly, Brooklyn and Plainfield, homeowners have many questions about gypsy moth control. By all accounts 2017 will be another bad year for gypsy moth infestation. The gypsy moth invasion has decended upon the forests of Killingly, Brooklyn and Plainfield CT. Everywhere you look, the tiny caterpillars now cover your trees, house, car and your clothing. The larvae are centimeters long right now, but they will make a meal of your leafy trees as they grow. It is going to be a tough season for your leafy hardwoods. Oak, maple, apple, birch, poplar, willow, and alder are most frequently attacked. Older caterpillars will also attack evergreens like pines and spruces.
The Spring 2017 gypsy moth caterpillars hatched the last week of April. These hungry larvae feed on the leaves of your leafy trees. Without intact leaves, the trees are unable to turn sunlight into food. A complete defoliation severely weakens the trees, and can leave them vulnerable to attack by other pests.
