    The trees have refoliated and the cankerworms have gone underground, for now. Unless a winter miracle happens, these caterpillars may likely well be back. They emerge from the ground in the fall to...

    I would be curious to know if the areas that didn't have the heavy defoliation from the loopers have butterflies, like gate 4, JBF, Eagles Nest. It makes sense that there are lots of butterflies...

    I have tons of butterfilies every year and this year there are none at all, not even the blue and black ones. I am convinced it is because of the loopers.... they stripped the trees bare leaving...

    What about possibly checking with the local colleges to see if there is a tech savy student who might want to get some experience?

    After exploring various avenues, this is the best we (Shannondale Gypsy Moth Committee) can come up with since there is no state or county program for these cankerworms.
    The SGMC will send a fund...

    Thanks SD3, but it's really people like you who have consistently observed and reported, that matter the most. I found the explanation given by the Forest Health Specialist in the article about how...

    OMD, thanks again for the picture, WVDA has it and hopefully it can aid in their defoliation mapping.
    Also, there is an article in today's (Monday) Journal about the looper problem here.

    Perhaps it's time to start contacting our Delegate Paul Espinosa about this problem. It is impacting a huge number of people in his district and there are definitely safety concerns in terms of the...

    Thanks Katherine! The first thing we need is for as many landowners as possible to attend the WVDA training in September so they can learn how to sticky band several of their trees to check for the...

    WVDA was here again today but couldn’t do much defoliation mapping due to fog/rain. They did not see signs of collapse and are predicting that we are likely going to have another outbreak next year. ...

    I talked to the aerial applicator currently contracted by the state, and they cannot treat small parcels of land/individual property. I strongly encourage other people to start making calls about...
  18. Sticky: These are not gypsy moth caterpillars, they are...

    These are not gypsy moth caterpillars, they are cankerworms/loopers and there is no state program that can map out a treatment area like they do for gypsy moths. At this point it seems the only...

    I too am very concerned that a permanent population of loopers may be developing. The fact that they have been building in Shannondale for three years, when to my knowledge we have not had a problem...

    The rule of thumb is that trees usually survive one year of heavy defoliation but two consecutive years puts them at great risk.
    I've been doing more research and another product that is very...

    I don't know the answer on the acorns but that's a good question. I am wondering if these regular bug treatments that people get around their houses could kill off beneficial predators, especially...
