Fuzzy pillar

Hello, I've a caterpillar question. I found a 1" long fuzzy/wooly caterpillar eating my rhubarb. I think perhaps it was oportunistic, but you never know. It had tan/creme, long bristle-y hairs all over, consistent length. Through the long hairs I could see light pale orange spots near/on the spiracles. There were no other markings I could see. I was unable to find it again to capture it for a photo. Nearby plants are a catalpa tree & a cottonwood. Thank you.

This tree started having sap bubbles appear but there doesn't seem to be any holes, just normal cracking of the bark. No sawdust noticed but leaves are curling up.

Locust Boring Beetles

I have a 20 yr old plus robe locust that has bore holes and locust beetles. This is the first year I have seen them. Is there something I can do now to treat the tree and try to stop the damage? Is this something I can do or do I need to contact a professional?

Thank you in advance Lori

Maple tree samaras

I live in Carson City, NV. This year my maple tree had more samaras than ever and until now has not lost them. As a result, the tree has few leaves and we have swarms of box elder bugs. Does the tree need food or something else that will help it for next year?
