Eastern Tent Caterpillars
Eastern Tent caterpillars are most often found on or near wild cherry trees, wild plum trees, apple trees or other ornamentals such as crab apple. They strip the tree’s leaves after building a nest, or tent, and then migrate to areas such as fences, sides of buildings or the ground. MU Extension guide G7271 Insect Defoliators of Missouri Trees offers tips on identifying and controlling several species of web producing caterpillars.

4-H: Leaders for life
4-H Faculty, Staff and Volunteers create multiple opportunities for youth. 4-H project work and related educational experiences help youth explore interests in citizenship, communications and leadership. 4-H Youth report 3 times more opportunities than their non-4-H peers to engage in meaningful community leadership roles. This interest in leadership and community service translates to a 70% greater likelihood of 4-H members to attend college compared to youth participating in other out-of school programs. 4-H is growing the leaders of tomorrow today. For information on joining 4-H, contact your local MU Extension center.
