tent caterpillars

Asked May 10, 2015, 5:49 PM EDT

How do we get rid of tent caterpillars? Does Montgomery County have a service, or does it have a free service to set up an appointment to have this service done?

The Eastern tent caterpillar is extremely common and is likely to be what you have. http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/eastern-tent-caterpillar-trees
It is doubtful that Montgomery County will get rid of them for you. They do not have to be controlled. http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/opi/contactUs.html should be able to tell you if such a service is available. vw
