I've been busy trying to save a couple of trees and an old rose bush that the tent caterpillars want to call their own. I start my mornings with a cup of coffee then I check the patio for CPP (caterpillar pellet poop)! There is a ton of it every morning and evening. According to the internet, it is good fertilizer. Like I should sweep it and haul it to the garden!
All I know is that it is hard and hurts the bottom of my feet. Yes, I can usually be found barefooted - (Kari did not get her shoe fetish from me!)
I "wash" down the tree of any caterpillars I can manage to get and then hose down the deck. Hosing down the trees has become rather therapeutic.
