This might help;





Dipel contains Bacillus thuringiensis, or Bt for short; it is highly effective and selective against most species of caterpillars. This biological control is a bacterial stomach poison for all caterpillars, which is mixed with water and sprayed onto foliage. It must be ingested by the actively feeding caterpillar, which dies 3-5 days later. It is totally safe to beneficial insects, bees and mammals. Bt is broken down by sunlight within a few days; so repeated applications may be necessary

Gypsy moths. Here in Pa. they were bad many years ago. If I recall the state was spraying them.
They can devestate a tree fairly fast.

That is a dutch number plate as well unless I am mistaken - I have been inside an office building in MK that was literally covered in spiders (not very good if you are afraid of spiders!)

They are tent caterpillars!

Tent caterpillars

We call 'em bagworms here in Louisiana. They are wrapping up uur fruit trees here as we speak! Three years ago we had an infestation like those pictures. It was nasty! All the leaves were chewed offa the trees and they were all webbed up.

Thankfully it goes in cycles, so this year there are just a few. Just enough to put in the freezer and save for trot-line bait, actually!

I think I puked in my mouth a little on that one. We've had army worms here in Duluth MN real bad before. Bad enough to make some streets real greasy to drive on, but never seen a car get hijacked by worms like that before.

We called 'em bagworms where I grew up in Maryland too. Gross, but didn't really do any harm. At least not to our apple tree that they infested year after year.

Would not like to be a homeless dude sleeping on a park bench in that town...
Wonder what made the caterpillars do that-They must be confused and think cars etc were plants/trees?
Weird.

What a horror!

We call them tent worms or tent caterpillars, too. We call bag worms the caterpillars or worms that form an elongated diamond shaped or seed shaped cocoon that hangs off of the branches of evergreens and are cleverly disguised to blend in with the foliage.

We call them Army worms up here to. They cause accidents sometimes on the highway when theyre really bad.

Heard a story a couple years back of a guy who shoveled garbage bags full of them off of his deck and yard.


Thank god a moved to the flatlands where there are no trees to attract them.
