We believe the infestation of small worms you are describing are cankerworms. We have been getting many calls and emails from southern Maryland about this. It sounds like the ones you have are finished feeding in the trees and are looking for a place to pupate and will cause no further damage to your landscape. You can spray them off the house or furniture with the hose, sweep them up and dispose of them in the trash. LW
