I live on 20 acres on the Brazos River with large trees throughout the River bottom and the
the place looks like about 10 of those halloween stores fake spider webs blew up!

The ground is covered in their tiny black droppings, like if you lay a sheet of paper on the ground for a day, it looks like paint splatter from the dang worm feces! Walking around you get covered in the webs so much that you feel like your in a dust storm because of the amount of grit sticking to you that you can't see!

Understand this isn't hype because we're sissies. Its that dad-gum bad! lol.

I guess we're too late for wasp. Too many tress and too tall of Cottonwoods and pecans to try to kill them or poke at-em manually.

I think I need a commercial sprayer that can shoot trees like Chris Kyle.

Any ideas yall?
Thanks!

Maybe a power washer or other high pressure spray if it would hit and damage the webs high into the trees. And not damage the trees too much. Once the webs are open other insects will invade to eat.

Not up here in North Texas. Not so far, at any rate. This is a reminder for those who haven't seen them so far to get the trichogramma wasps (on little cards) in place ahead of the development of pests.

If you can spray through the webs you could mix a little BT Worm Killer in the water. That should wipe them out pronto.
