Inch worms on my apricot tree
We have lived in our home for three years and have a lovely large apricot tree in the back yard (along with several apple trees and a peach tree). The tree has always produced fruit that is full of bugs but we are ok with that at the moment because we have been busy with the new house and don't need the fruit, the tree itself is really pretty. This spring it flowered as usual and seemed fine but when I went down to the bottom of the yard after a week of rain most of the leaves were gone. Looking close I saw several inch worms and lots of "threads". What do I put on it to get rid of the worms and most importantly make sure the tree does not die. Also should I worry about the other trees. I would rather not call someone in as we don't really have the money but would if it were life or death for the poor tree. (I prefer organic but for the tree will subject us to whatever horrible chemicals). Thanks!!
