Prevent Chewing Insects

Prevent Chewing Insects

Chewing insect pests cause damage by consuming plant parts such as leaves and stems or burrowing in plant tissues, which damages the host plant. Symptoms of chewing insect pests include holes in leaves, silvering of leaf tissue, complete removal of leaf tissues and burrowing in or around plant stems, branches or trunks. Common insects causing this type of damage include tent caterpillars, webworms, bagworms, shadetree borers and other beetles.

Insecticide applications are most effective when timed for the presence of young larvae or before large numbers of adults are present.
