We took all the caterpillers out of a couple of "tents" and threw them in our pond. It's the only thing besides rocks and wrenches that the blugills won't eat. So, we tried a couple of home remedies to no avail. Now I carry a little spray container of malathion in the car for a really good feeling every time I stop and make 50 or a 100 of them curl up and fall off the trees.

We were just up in the city of Waupaca and let me tell you....people LOOK UP! On the West side of town every tree has a tent. You need to cut that tent out of the tree, bring it down, put petrol on it, and burn it.
