Cloth Banding Trees to Suppress Gypsy Moth

Small gypsy moth caterpillars feed on trees during the daytime.

This change in behavior by the larger gypsy moth caterpillars gives homeowners a chance to do some small scale control activities. Using cloth and string or twine, you can construct an artificial hiding place for the caterpillars. Includes illustrations.
