Tent caterpillars

See if you can spot anything like this in any of your trees (almost as hard as a rock, easier to see right now before trees leaf out):

That's what their eggs look like. Cut one off of my grape vine late last summer and another off my apple tree that I assume would've turned into a mess in May/June if left to their own device. Haven't read whats expected for population this time around but If I had to bet I'd put money on my yard being more the rule than the exception.

I live in a apt but last spring we had alot crawling onto our sides of balconies and dropping from the top so gross lol and they were coming from a tree between our apts and greenwood apts, and I really hope they arent this spring. Glad you saved your grape and apple trees lol  
Thank you for the photo too

Brandon is

to start spraying next week but it is a little late for some areas! Let'e get ahead of the curve Brandon!!! Trees in front of my home by Vincent Massey school are crawling in places. I sprayed my entire property with Grub out. That killed most of them but they are growing and marching all over. Fanning out from the host nest. Kind of like a bad B rated horror movie!
