Now is the time to be on the lookout for tent caterpillars in your trees. Right now, female tent caterpillars are laying their eggs (about 200-300 over the course of the summer months).

If they are not removed, tent caterpillars will defoliate ornamental trees. Not only can they cause damage to trees, but they are toxic to horses, as well. Therefore, the team at Grosh's Lawn Service recommends removing all tent caterpillars whenever possible.

If you are able to safely reach the communal nest, they can be removed by hand. However, if the nest is perched too high, or if tent caterpillar removal is not your cup of tea, contact Tom and the team from Grosh’s Lawn Service will remove the nest for you, through hand removal or insecticide.

Watch the YouTube Video below, a live recording of tent caterpillar removal in Washington County, Maryland.

The Grosh's Lawn Service team is seeing sawflies cause severe damage to many of our clients' trees in the Washington County, Maryland, area.

In fact, in just three short days, one of our clients had sawflies seriously devastate pine trees. Thousands of sawflies had eaten the tree to near death.

With a little luck the trees may be able recover. However, that is entirely dependent on winter weather. If we have a long, cold winter, the trees may not make it.

Here, the sawfly has an average of lifespan of 7-9 days. But, the larval stage can last anywhere from months to years, depending on the species.

Take a few minutes and educate yourself on sawflies, by watching the video below.
