Keep your trees looking their best by eliminating the tent caterpillar.
The tent caterpillar is native to North America and can be found in the Collingwood, Ontario area. Populations of the tent caterpillar will fluctuate, and you will see large outbreaks every few years. If tent caterpillars are present on your property, they may defoliate your trees, build unsightly silken nests in your trees, and wander all over your plants and walkways. Usually, tent caterpillars show up in the early summer or the late spring.
The main reason a tent caterpillar infestation is problematic is because when a large number of these bugs are present, they can defoliate large trees. While the tree will eventually recover and put out new leaves, in the meantime, the tree may not be a very attractive part of your landscape. Additionally, the tent caterpillar nests can become an eyesore on your property.
For most tent caterpillar infestations, the use of insecticides is very effective. We can tell you more about how to get rid of tent caterpillars on your property, and we can apply insecticides that help you eliminate the infestation and protect the appearance of your trees going forward.
