I have a severe infestation of cankerworm and would like to treat with ACECAP. When would you recommend application as I know the product talks about a 30 day window of effectiveness. The trees, Oak, hickory, holly, dogwood have only now have bud swelling. Should I wait till they have leafed out? Based on the spring we are having....when do you recommend to be most effective? Thanks

We don't generally recommend homeowners treat cankerworms themselves.
The timing for trunk implants is just as the trees are beginning to leaf out.
Essentially, now.
