National Invasive Species Awareness Week: Forest Pests
KNOCK OUT BROWNTAIL with the Four Rs
- Recognize webs during the winter season when they are easiest to see.
- Remove winter webs with hand snips or an extendable pole pruner before April. Destroy webs by soaking them in soapy water or burn them safely and legally.
- Recruit professional help to treat or remove webs you can’t reach in areas of high human use such as your dooryard.
- Reach Out and let your neighbors and town officials know if you find browntail caterpillars or webs in your neighborhood.
