Cloth Banding Trees to Suppress Gypsy Moth

Small gypsy moth caterpillars feed on trees during the daytime. However, as the caterpillars become larger and more noticeable on foliage, they begin a daily trek from the canopy of the tree to escape direct sunlight and predators. 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. Archive copy of publication, no not use for current recommendations. 3pp.
