Two days went by and both my young apple trees had their leaves totally chewed off by this stupid thing…in fact…by about 9 of these things.
Gypsy moth caterpillars?
I’m not really sure actually. I guess the rest of my post should have been me asking what it is…haha
Is there any gypsy moth organic sprays?
Is there anything I should be concerned about at this point with them eating all of the leaves?
Spray with Bt, Bacillus Thuringenesis. There are several brands of Bt on the market.
Thanks. Will do. Is there a chance this would be fatal for the tree or likely just grow leaves this year?
The tree should come back OK. Just treat the tree like normal i. e. watering it as needed.
