Gypsy Moth Caterpillar

Gypsy Moth Caterpillar


A destructive pest
Gypsy Moth Caterpillar - these caterpillars are dark and hairy with a double row of five pairs of blue and six pairs of red spots from head to tail. They feed on many tree species. Favourites include birches, lindens, crabapples, mountain ash, willows, oaks, blue spruce and many other trees. Voracious feeders, these caterpillars have been known to defoliate trees.

Trap caterpillars by tying a band of burlap around tree trunks. Inspect daily and destroy caterpillars.

Use Acecaps to prevent damage or foliar treatments. These must be applied by a professional

Turf King uses either Acecaps for larger trees or an organic insecticide to control the Gypsy Moth Caterpillar
