Winter Moths and Winter Moth Caterpillars

Although the actual name indicates a winter-time nuisance, the winter moths that you see in November and December are actually harmless. However, the winter moth caterpillar that becomes active in the spring and can do serious damage to your trees and shrubs.

Make no mistake, winter moth caterpillars are serious pests in the Greater Boston and MetroWest areas. Please contact us to speak with a Certified MA Arborist and allow them to provide a free estimate and consultation to avoid serious damage, defoliation and possible long-term effects such as death to your trees.

Although the winter moths are not harmful in their moth stage, ultimately their larvae produce destructive green inchworms. These small green worms defoliate deciduous shrubs, plants and trees at an extremely fast rate due to the sheer volume of caterpillars. One tree alone can have thousands of eggs.

Trees and plants susceptible to winter moths and winter moth caterpillars include:

  • Oaks
  • Maples
  • Ashes
  • Crabapples
  • Apples
  • Blueberries
  • Cherries
