Gypsy Moth Control

When it’s a bad year for gypsy moth caterpillars, it’s not too late to spray your trees against further damage. Take a look at your leafy trees. fruit trees, and ornamental plants – barely leafed out and now full of hungry parasites. Gypsy Moth caterpillars hatched at the same time our trees began leafing out several weeks ago. I noticed my heirloom rose bushes are now under stress, three or more small invaders happily making a meal of each delicate leaf.  In Windham County Connecticut the gypsy moth caterpillars have declared open season on our forests. Now that the hatchlings are out in full force they will stop at nothing. A tough season for your leafy hardwoods, notably oak, maple, apple, birch, poplar, willow, and alder. More mature caterpillars are hiding in tree bark in good numbers. When they transform into moths, they will proliferate almost unchecked, as there are few natural predators.

Many birds avoid making a meal of the hairy gypsy moth caterpillars, though blue jays, towhees, and orioles found in eastern Connecticut are exceptions. There are small rodents that dine on the pupal form of the gypsy moth, and of course some wasps and fungi will decrease their numbers somewhat. Any significant leaf damage will seriously impair your trees’ ability to convert sunlight into nutrients. This makes your trees vulnerable to disease. Get a handle on these pests and call a licensed arborist. Ron Parrow has the experience to safely treat your yard and precious trees – call today.

Gypsy Moths Caterpillars Have Hatched…

In Windham County Connecticut the gypsy moth caterpillars have declared open season on our forests. Now that the hatchlings are out in full force they will begin to feed on your trees. 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 your deciduous trees, weakening the trees’ ability to turn sunlight into nourishment. A complete defoliation severely weakens the trees, and can leave them vulnerable to attack by other pests.
