Webworms in District Trees

Date posted: 6/3/2019


 

The District’s landscaper and MUD Board are aware of the webworm infestation in the District and are awaiting a proposal for treatment from the District’s arborist.

Pecan Tree WebWorms in Texas Hill Country

The webworm, Hyphantria cunea (Drury), is a common pest of trees. It attacks more than 88 different kinds of plants, but does not attack conifers (pines and other needle-bearing trees). Webworms are known for the large webs they produce. Webworms only damage tree leaves and do not kill the branches upon which their nests form. These branches will grow new leaves next year so there is no need to cut branches out of a tree to remove the nests.
