What’s With All the Winter Moths?

Have you seen winter moths covering your outdoor lights and doors? We have. Lynch Plant Healthcare is gearing up for an increase in Winter Moth treatments. The activity of the moths is already in full swing as these moths leave their nests towards the end of November and stay active through January laying their eggs in deciduous and hardwood trees. The most commonly affected trees are fruiting trees such as Crab Apple, Apple, and Pears and hardwood trees such as Oaks, Maples, and Sycamores. These eggs begin to hatch in the spring when the tree begins to bloom and are apparent by the holes and silky strings left behind by the hungry caterpillars. Our MA Certified Arborists use a copy of a naturally occurring soil fungus to protect your trees from the harmful pests without harming the tree or nearby shrubs. If you spot these pests and insects flying around your property now and would like an estimate to treat them in the spring, please call Lynch Plant Healthcare as soon as possible.
