What is causing webs in my trees?

Fall Webworms

If you have notice webbing in the branch forks or at their ends of your ornamental and shade trees, you probably have fall webworms. If left unchecked, they can very quickly defoliate your trees. As soon as you spot them, handpick or spray bacillus thurengiensis (Bt)on the webs, branches and foliage to eliminate the caterpillars.

Bt is specific to this family of insects and will not harm beneficial bugs, animals or humans.
