Controlling Gypsy Moths With Folded Burlap Strips

Gypsy moth caterpillars hide under folded burlap strips

This tree is wrapped with folded burlap strips to provide a place for gypsy moths to hide. A couple of times a day, or at least in the evening, check under the burlap folds. Collect and destroy the gypsy moth caterpillars found hiding there.
