WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR
One of the most damaging pests to encounter. Caterpillars chew away leaves, diminishing growth and leaving the plant visually unappealing. They typically emerge during early spring and fall and can be found on new leaf growth.
SIGN OF INFESTATION
Caterpillars will cause leaves to turn brown and become a papery texture. They tend to leave behind a silky webbing and small, black excrements. Caterpillars will also eat away the margins of the leaves, leaving behind sign of destruction.
How to Treat
- Monitoring – Keep an eye on new growth of any susceptible plants for signs of a caterpillar infestation. These may include fine webbing, browning of the leaves, buildup of small, black excrements, or holes in the leaves.
- Fertilizer – Caterpillars can eat dozens of leaves a day, taking a huge toll on any infested plants! To help your plant and trees bounce back and re-gain any lost growth, be sure to apply Super Charged Moon Juice and Moon Dust.
- Treatment – Caterpillars are most effectively controlled by topical sprays. Be sure to thoroughly coat the surface of the leaves and follow all instructions on the topical spray label. After treating, conduct a light prune to remove any unsightly damaged leaves.
