Are there masses of white webs in your trees? Your home or business’s trees might be infested with fall webworms. Fall webworms are caterpillars that feed and lay eggs in trees and then spend the winters in cocoons where they reemerge as moths. They can sometimes be confused with bagworms, but bagworms create spindle like cocoons, where the fall webworms cover outer tree canopies with webs. If this is something that you would like to be treated immediately, call Fort Worth Arborist Co. today for webworm treatment in Fort Worth, TX! Our certified ISA arborists can examine your trees and determine what course of action is best. Get in touch with us at 817-975-0180 to make an appointment now.
The most common trees that are attacked by fall webworms in this area are oak, hickory, or pecan. The good news is that while the webs of the fall webworm are unattractive, they don’t present an adverse effect on trees. However, with a repeated infestation, it can stress the tree out, weakening it and making it susceptible to other diseases. They don’t feed on the bark of the tree but instead consume the leaves, which will grow out again. If the look of the webs is something that you aren’t into, we will be glad to remove the webs for you.
However, it’s best to prune the branches when the caterpillars are present; they make their cocoons in the soil, so there is no way to rid your tree of the webworms until the caterpillars are active. Another thing we can do when the caterpillars are still around is spraying an insecticide. We will usually only use the insecticide for younger trees that are in danger of losing all of their leaves.

One of our neighbor's oak trees had oak wilt, so we called Fort Worth Arborist Co to have them check our trees for problems. They came out the next week and checked our trees and a number of our neighbors' trees as well. Then we received a detailed report via email...at no charge!
