I had web worms in the front tree. Noticed them one day in about 4 or 5 leaves and the next day they had spreaded to 3 other locations within the same tree. The following day when they pest control guy showed up, they had already eaten up 1/4 of the tree and were hard at work going for the rest of the leaves. How did they get there and what happens to them when they eat the whole tree? Do they become butterflies? Go underground?

Default Help, Worm invasion

As far as web worms, you can buy poison to kill them but also remember if you ever get a wasp nest (read yellow jackets) and the nest is away from the family, dont kill them! Wasp are meat eaters, they hunt other bugs at night. They will take care of web worms. With that said if you have alot of web worms and a small amount of wasp nest, the web worms will win.

In response to the worms in the garage, Otherhalf07 said "finally bombed the place and they seemed to have stopped" What exactly did you use to "bomb" them

Here is a link to Bexar County Extension services/Texas Cooperative Extension.
If you look about 3/4 of the way down the page, you will see this link:

"Do you have a question or a picture of a bug that you would like to know more about? Send us an e-mail!"

If you start there, I'm absolutely sure these fine people will solve your mystery AND have a solution for you - and probably an inexpensive solution at that...
good luck!!!!

oops, almost forgot the link!!!
