• What Do I Do About Webworms?

    Many north Texas homeowners are noticing unsightly silken webs appearing on a variety of trees this summer. One of the most common foliage feeding caterpillars in north Texas is the fall webworm, Hyphantria cunea. Despite its name, the fall webworm is active throughout the warm season and will produce about three generations in Texas. The early appearance of fall webworm caterpillars in 2007 may indicate a banner year for this pest.
