    I've got a question for everyone. Anybody else being invaded by caterpillars? They are everywhere by me, hanging from trees dive bombing from time to time. Mowing a yard and can't see their webs and then getting tangled around your face. These dam things are everywhere. I've have 4 customers complain all with 24 hours. I've never this before, am I the only one??

    we have them all over the place in my yard and a few clients. I bought some stuff made by bayer that you put at the base of the tree and it makes the leaves toxic to them, hope it works. they are hanging over a new patio area we are putting in the woods. And i refuse to mow under a crap apple tree in our yard that has about 30 nests in it.
