There is a moth in its cocoon stage hanging on my Beechwood tree. There at least 30-40 of them. What is the best way to deal with this type of infestation?

Hello. Have you been able to ID the type of moth/cocoon or infestation? Unfortunately I can not recommend any type of treatment without knowing what the insect is. Keep an eye on the cocoon and when the insect emerges try to get a photo of it and then we can determine if any management is needed.
