Buckmoth Caterpillars are THE ENEMY

And they must be stopped!

If you are interested in getting your trees sprayed to kill all those buckmoth caterpillars dead, today is the deadline (or so the flyer told me, even though I don't see mention of it on the webpage) to place your order.
Also, it's good for the trees!

Buckmoth Caterpillar Spraying: Spring defoliation by the caterpillars can lead to damage that the trees cannot overcome. The caterpillar voraciously eats the foliage of oaks and has a nasty sting when touched by humans or pets. Live oaks were stressed by the storm and the subsequent drought. As with fertilization, fully licensed, reputable companies are contracted to spray infested trees with insecticide. Trees cannot be sprayed until the caterpillars have hatched.



$75 a tree

...and for me, another year of sweet victory in my annual war... (They started it!)
