Tent Caterpillars

For the most part, Lake Carlos has been spared any major infestation of tent caterpillars for the last couple of years.  If a major infestation occurs, neighborhood groups will join together to arrange for aerial spraying.  Ground surface-level spraying is also available through local pest-control companies.

Though the spray used to control the tent caterpillars is non-poisonous, it does not differentiate when it comes to caterpillars.  As a result, caterpillars that produce butterflies are also impacted and eliminated by the spray.  LCAA can direct residents to neighborhood groups but we do not participate directly in the spraying process.
