There are three different kinds of tent caterpillars in the US. They are the forest tent caterpillar, the eastern tent caterpillar and the western tent caterpillar. All of these types can cause extensive damage to trees because they devour the leaves on them.
spray them with any insect killer
they eat trees and leaves
Tent caterpillars make a tent out of silk on branches of trees. The larvae can only eat small, young leaves, which kills the tree faster than eating the larger, older leaves.
Forest tent caterpillars eat tree parts like its bark, the wood, and leaves. They usually eat Elm, Maple, Oak, and Sout trees.
Differtent kinds of caterpillars eat different kinds of plants. Monarch butterfly caterpillars eat milkweed, tent caterpillars eat alder trees, the gypsy moth catapillar eats fir trees.
Tent caterpillars are not poisonous. However, the hairs on the tent caterpillars back may be irritating to humans or animals that rub up against it.
Forest Tent Caterpillars turn into moths not butterflies.
There are about 26 types of tent caterpillars. The most common types are eastern tent caterpillar, western tent caterpillar, forest tent caterpillar, and the lackey moth.
No. Eastern tent caterpillars are the larvae of a moth, not Monarch butterflies.

they eat wild cherry, apple's trees and other trees with fruit. they also love to suck on apples, but be careful not to let it stick to the caterpillar!
Eastern tent caterpillars are NOT poisonous, they are only dangerous to the mare reproductive system of horses but they do cause heavy damage to trees---so watch out for these hungry pests!
Eastern Tent Caterpillars eat the the leaves and early buds from many trees, their favorites being wild or ornamental cherry trees and apple trees. Though they do defoliate trees, the trees themselves most often survive.

The forest tent caterpillar is known to eat the leaves from birch trees. If there are too many of them living on the tree it can cause severe damage.
Cover the entire "tent" with a plastic garbage bag and the lack of air should do the trick. If you cut off the branch, carefully place it in a garbage bag, or you will find that you have more of these caterpillars.
caterpillars hide in trees
