Gypsy moth caterpillars can do a lot of damage to trees by eating all the leaves. You can often tell if trees have been invaded by gypsy moth caterpillars by looking for the black spots under the trees, all over the ground; this is caterpillar poop. Additionally, you may see moths flying around close to the trees. Gypsy moths are most often found on Oak, Aspen, Willow, and Birch trees. Gypsy moths can be devastating for the trees and for the environment.
In mid to late spring, Gypsy moths can appear on your trees along with web like nests. They are easily identified by their yellow heads and fuzzy bodies. If you see signs of the moths and caterpillars, and you notice the leaves start to disappear from the trees, it's important to take action before the trees are damaged or even killed. One way to take care of the problem is to spray with an insecticide.
