Infestation!!! Am I in trouble?
Take a look at these caterpillar things I have found in two different Redbud trees... in my yard. One was my treasured Forest Pansy Redbud and the other is a regular Redbud.
So, I have clipped both of the infested sections and removed them from the tree.. threw them away.
But is this a sign of a looming garden cancer in my yard?
What are they?
Should I remove the offended branch (as I did) or can I just kill the bugs and assume that the branch will be all recovered next year?
Thanks for the help! (oh, the link is below)
