am sure all of New Braunfels is being devastated by what some call Army Worms or the Eastern tent caterplller They are just all over and seem to favor my fruit trees and Live Oaks I would like to pass on a possible solution I have found that by first applying a band of twoinch duct tape around the circumference of the tree about three to four feet up from the ground and then coaling it with a thin coal of luhlunvbased these worms will not cross the grease and will congregate below this tape trying to figure how to cross it So It stops the worms from going up and it also stops the ones coming down On thick like Live the tape should be pressed In the grooves and secured every six inches or so with a staple into the thick part of the bark Do not staple on thin barked trees The duct tape should last the few more weeks the worms will be with us and thenit can be removed and toss ed away Lse a lithiumbased grease as a heavy rain will not wash it away like ordinary grease Then if this works for you like it did for mark your 1988 calendar to repeat this process around the first of April to gel a head start on the problem He adds that when the confused worms gather above and below the greased duct he goes out and sprays with appropriate insecticide and wipes out hordes of em Neat huh S I David chairman o Conutl Central Appraisal Districts board of makes this offer he will
