Fall cankerworm biology, ecology, and management in urban and rural landscapes

This webinar will discuss the biology, ecology, and management of the native fall cankerworm. Management strategies in the urban and rural environment will be covered.

The fall cankerworm, Alsophila pometaria, is a moth native to North America whose caterpillars are commonly called inchworms. While this defoliator generally remains at low abundances, occasional outbreaks may occur. Defoliation rarely hurts the tree, but may act as a stress agent if prolonged outbreaks occur. This webinar will cover the biology and ecology of cankerworms, as well as management strategies. Management in urban areas as well as in rural areas will be covered.

Presented by: Ms. Laurie Reid-Dukes, Assistant City Arborist, City of Charlotte
