    ( I also left a post in the pest and fert section). Anyone have a problem with asps (stinging caterpillar)? If so, what kind of controls can you use on them. One extension agency has said Thuracide. Any other ideas?

    Hi Schlepie,

    Here is a quote from this site.

    "CONTROL -
    Puss moth caterpillars should be controlled when they become abundant by spraying with a residual pesticide such as permethrin, cyfluthrin or other sprays labeled for control of caterpillars on ornamental plants."
