Gypsy Moth Caterpillars

"The gypsy moth is one of the most important forest pests in the Northeast. The caterpillars feed on leaves of forest, shade, ornamental and fruit trees, and shrubs. A single defoliation can kill some evergreens, but usually two or more defoliations are needed to kill hardwoods." - IDL, Cornell University
