Put duct tape sticky side out around trunks, make it wide and when getting full remove and replace with new....

Anybody can shoot deer on the farm ground....You earn it in the mountains.......

Re: gypsy moths on fruit trees

I have seen using burlap and folding it over. Tie it around the tree using bungee cords and they crawl up the trunk and go under the burlap and seem to stay there. Then you can burn them. Either shake them into a fire or burn the burlap and all.
I did see on Channel 16 tonite of a house that was covered with them. We don't have that many near our house but I kill everyone I see.

Re: gypsy moths on fruit trees

First unless the trees are really big I would just get a ladder out and go about hand picking them to remove them from the tree rather then spraying. Its not that hard and doesn't take too long. Dont need to get every one, just enough so the tree can still have leaves to produce trees. Then deal with the truck as mentioned above.

Second. I've never heard of Gypsies feeding on fruit trees? Are you positive their Gypsies and not tent catapillars?

Either way I hate them so much. Kill them all.

Read up....although they highly preferred oak and aspen then will feed on about 100 different species. Learned something. Horrible creature.
