TreeHelp Bug Bands help control Tent Caterpillars and other crawling insects.

Protect your trees with TreeHelp Bug Bands 

Eastern tent caterpillar infestations rarely threaten the lives of trees so control is generally for aesthetic purposes. There are commercially insecticides available to combat these insects. Consult with a local landscape or garden professional for details. Tents are sometimes burned or otherwise destroyed at night after the caterpillars have returned from feeding. However, given the dangers involved, this is not generally recommended.

One easy and cost-effective prevention method is the use of TreeHelp Bug Bands.  These sticky traps prevent tent caterpillars and other crawling insects from reaching the foliage from the ground.  They are available at the TreeHelp Store.
