    They have those here...in the mountains (CO). When we went up to the mountains one time I kept seeing all these "webs" and I was thinking, "I dont wanna see the spider that lives in those things." But after we looked closer we could see a bunch of little catapillar (Sp? grr) type things moving around in them. It was their nests. Weird things!

    If you ever see a nest of these things in trees or such cut off that limb and burn it, these things are very detructive and will eventually kiill thier plant hosts.

    We have them in my city too, but not as many. It`s pretty unusal for them to spread like that. They usually just live on one type of tree (I don`t know what "hägg" is in english but that`s the name of the tree in swedish)

    web worms feed on the leaves of the trees
    they can kill a tree in no time
    but they only eat what`s inside the web
    so if you control the size of the web you control
    the worms
    i`ve worked in a garden center for over 7 years
    now. we have them here but not nearly to that extent. we have planes that spray BT over
    everthing to help control those and mosquitos.
    i`ve never seen it take a whole tree before 0.0

    The webworm, Hyphantria cunea (Drury), is a common pest of trees. It attacks more than 88 different kinds of plants, including many fruit, nut and ornamental trees and shrubs. It does not attack conifers (pines and other needle-bearing trees).

    ^I`m watching the X-Files right now(not that episode). I hate those worms, its a good thing I`ve only seen them in cherry trees around here, and never so large an infestation. Me and my brother find creative ways to destroy them, usually if they are large enough we blast them with birdshot :->

    Those are bad webworms. Wherever these pics came from need to move or something...
    My whole neighborhood is practically overrun by webworms. Not like THAT, of course, but they`re killing my pecan trees. One of my trees is almost already dead `cause of the things but we can`t afford to get the trees sprayed....-shudder- this is sick! The webworms I got at my hause are fuzzier, though...

    Hey lochness go back to school before you claim to know anything about these worms. Silkworm are much larger than webworms and are completely white. Webworms are horribly destructive and silkworms are not. Read a book some time and stop spurting the crap that comes out of you mouth. If you want to see what an actual silkworm looks like, you dolt, go here:

    I think these live more towards the northwestern new york around Niagra falls (thats the only place I`ve seen them). BTW, Are these the ones people were panicing about because they killed a poo load of trees in the adirondaks?

    Btw, they`re not bugs, they`re insects. Bugs have stomatic appendiges that can suck. Whereas insects don`t. Thats why when you give a straw to an insect they look at you funnily

    I thought silkworms at first but then I realised it was the wrong area so they must be webworms they were everywhere when I went to visit the US even in the toilets *shudders*

    We have something like that in NY.. I don`t think they`re exactly the same type, but they cover the trees and grass in `webs` and the little worm things hang off the trees by the hundreds on these long transparent strings. I was walking with someone once and we weren`t paying attention; we walked right into all these wormies hanging off a tree and started freaking out. We ended up spending quite a while picking worms off each other. *shudder*

    "YAY for the infested free (i think) CANADA B.C."

    Ditto...ish

    "That looks like a bad case of Tent caterpillars...way worse then I`ve ever seen. I think that`s what they are...yeah."

    Those aren`t tent caterpillars. I should know. In my town we got THOUSANDS of those [email protected] in these tree growing along a river going through the town. *shudder* They fall on you when you walk under because they`re so crowded together.

    And by the way LochNess-abz, calm down. You`re making an ass of yourself.

    Those are tent caterpillars. We`ve got them, though nowhere near as bad as that. But that`s what you do.: if you see them on the branch, cut the branch off and burn the whole damn thing. They`re terribly invasive.

    Well, seeing how the text on the page is in Swedish, the species is NOT a silkworm. Silkworms are technically Asiatic, not European. The species in the photos is actually Yponomeuta evonymella, Bird-cherry Ermine - also called Häggspinnmal in Swedish. You can see the moth form, nest and worm forms here:

    We`ve had these around the farm I lived at when I was younger, and then in the areas my family camps at during the summer. They`re army worms, and I know that you don`t have to cut off the branches of the tree to save it, but I know my dad always sprayed it with something. I want to say it was WD40, but that was over fifteen years ago, when I was two or three that we last had those problems around home.

    Anyway, here`s a link to a little more info about them: http://www.thegardenhelper.com/armyworm....

    Well loch-ness when little children act up they need to be reprimanded. And since I can`t send you to your room without supper, this will have to be good enough. Also, for the record, you initiated this little bout by you diatribe about silkworms and calling people pussies for not liking them. You embarrass yourself and your parent`s for their lack of discipline when you behave so egregiously ignorant.

    Wy website normally gets 600 to 800 hundred unique visitors a day. Saturday, August 5th, it spiked to about 1200. When I checked to see where the extra traffic came from, I found the link to my site from page one of this thread. (realgreenlawns.com)

    THe link that was posted was for Pecan Webworms. Some one else suggested armyworms. Neither is correct. (although close)

    Here is a link to the correct ID for the worms.:

    Great pictures. I really enjoyed looking at them.

    Down here in Texas, we have webworms...they come every year around this time and set up their webs in our Ash tree. They get pretty bad sometimes, but I`ve never seen them as bad as that...
