I have 7 large oak trees and the gypsy moths are starting to take a hold in our neighborhood. Haven't made their way to our property yet but I'm worried I won't be so lucky next year. Looking for a systemic as spraying 80-100 foot trees isn't something I can do. The trees all range in circumference of between 70-90 inches.
Yes, Bayer Advanced 12 month Tree and Shrub Protect and Feed II is labeled for caterpillars (including gypsy moths). Measure the distance in inches around the tree trunk at approximately 4.5 feet from ground level. This measurement is the amount of ounces of product to add to 1 gallon of water. If the tree measures greater than 50 inches around, pour the required product into 2 gallons of water.
