Attack of the worms
This is the second summer I've had a huge infestation of worms in my trees. They put out these strands of web silk, similar to spider webs that just cover everything and hang in the air with the worms. They are eating my trees alive it seems. I've contacted the forestry folks and they said I can treat them with a insecticide in the fall, but for this year it's too late. It's very hard on my squirrels because it stops cone production on the spruce trees. So, it looks as if I'll have to put out extra food for them to survive this winter.
