Insect population outbreaks can be caused by a number of factors. All animal populations exhibit periodic fluctuations, perhaps due to climate or other related factors. Since this is a natural phenomenon, it may be best to do nothing-just observe the cycle. In many cases an outbreak of one species causes an increase in its natural enemies which in turn brings the pest species under control. There is a lag time before the enemies catch up with the pest so you need to be patient.
