    p have been keeping an eye out all summer and have yet to see any. My usual dog walk takes me past many Catalpa trees and they don't even seem to have the wholes in the leaves that the worms usually cause. We had tons of them last year. Makes you wonder. Must be global worming or something. LOL.

    Same here. been looking since early July and nothing, no holes in the leaves in NE Ohio either. Tim by Piedmont told me he has seen a few but not many.
  4. Nothing in my neck of the woods. I quite looking. Last year we were getting them at the beginning of August. I wonder if the dry summer had anything to do with it?????

    already picked around 50 doz this year....dont know if all trees produce the worms every year or not...but I have noticed that some trees only produce the worms on a hit and miss year they will have them and the next they wont....but its getting that time of year where the worms are done...all the trees that we were watching that still had worms on them have already lost all their worms....
  9. went out 3 days ago and found some trees that are just starting to get worms on them,probably gonna be a short season but they are starting here
  10. Here in the Albany area I finally had a few show up in some of the trees, thankfully not to many. Only ate up few dozen leaves and not stripping them bare like in the past.
