The Webworm is Back in the Twin Tiers
The webworm is right on schedule. Their light gray silken webs are starting to show up as they do every late summer into early fall. These webs are nothing to be concerned about as far as harming the trees goes, according to the Penn State University, cooperative Extension, College of Agricultural Sciences. The webworm is just doing what webworms do at this time of year, and the webs will just eventually fall off. Hickory, walnut, birch, cherry and crabapple trees are the most commonly effected.
