From Planet Natural:
Tent Caterpillar Control: Scrape off and discard overwintering egg masses and tear the protective tents out by hand before the larvae start to feed. Control caterpillar movement and restrict access to feeding areas with Tanglefoot Pest Barrier. Apply Bacillus thuringiensis, var. kurstaki (Bt-k) or Monterey Garden Insect Spray (spinosad) to the leaves to kill feeding caterpillars. If necessary, spot treat with botanical insecticides as a last resort. Spray must penetrate silken tents for effective control.
I have seen women looking at jewelry ads with a misty eye and one hand resting on the heart, and I only know what they're feeling because that's how I read the seed catalogs in January.
