The forest tent caterpillar is a moth first seen in North America around 1791. For the past few years, Canadian maple syrup producers, especially Quebeckers, have to deal with thousands of them eating the leaves off their maple trees.
Each year during the month of July, every moth lay between 150 and 350 eggs on treetops. To fight against this, we use a biological agent Bacillus Thuringiensis that eliminate them in 4 to 5 days. It is very important to order as soon as possible for it contains a living substance. The product is the most efficient in its early life thus a production date close to its use is strongly recommended. Then, our expertise allows us to take action in such delays as to optimize its effect.
