|Tent caterpillar infestation continues in pockets of Central New York Gloria Wright / The Post StandardA band of lighter colored trees shows the location of a tent caterpillar infestation on Song Mountain along Song Lake Road in Preble. The worst of the current forest tent caterpillar outbreak may be over, but that s little consolation to property owners still battling the insects. Joseph Heath, of Preble, is one of the people still living with the pest. Heath, a lawyer who represents the Onondaga Nation, and his wife, Tarki, live on Song Lake in Cortland County, just south of the Onondaga County line. "We looked across the lake. . It s clearly heavily eaten up by these insects," he said. Over the years, the Heaths have tried various methods to control the caterpillars on their property. They have collected the caterpillars one by one. They have inoculated the oak trees behind their house. They have ringed the trunks of the trees with duct tape treated with bacteria to kill the caterpillars. "We ve been battling these things for years," he said. "It s been four years. These things have been very harmful." Heath said he thought the worst was over this summer, because he and his wife have not seen as many tents or caterpillars on their property, but the trees around them still show the devastation wrought by the caterpillars. "We had one crawling Moncler Men Down Jackets Button Handsome Purple on the railing just the other night," Heath said. Richard Pancoe, supervising forester in the state department of Environmental Conservation s Cortland office, said foresters this month are surveying the forest cover in the area to note trends, such as the extent of caterpillar defoliation. "Outside of Sheds (in Madison County), I ve seen some hillsides stripped hard, and they re starting to refoliate. . I haven t heard about much defoliation Tully way, but what we are seeing are defoliation pockets." Kim Adams, state College of Environmental Science and Forestry extension entomologist, said the worst is over. The heaviest defoliation locally was in 2005 and 2006 Moncler Goose Jackets Womens Ingres Hooded Belt Black with the most persistent population probably in the Tully/Lafayette area. "The thing has pretty well subsided," Adams said. "We re still having these pockets of significant defoliation. It s an anomaly. It s not typical." She said the forest tent caterpillars, along with eastern tent caterpillars, Moncler Red Vest emerge in the spring from their cocoons, and begin eating their way through the region s trees. "They re done feeding for all intents and purposes, but the defoliation is just starting to pop out at people in some places," Adams said. Tent caterpillar outbreaks occur about once a decade, Adams said. The insect population builds over a period of two years. Over the two following years, the caterpillars fall prey to predators, disease and parasites, and the infestation wanes. Syracuse city arborist Brian Liberti said the city saw a scattering of tent caterpillar infestations last year. The Franklin Square area was especially hard hit, he said. This year, he has seen none. Pancoe had no explanation about why people are still seeing the caterpillars this late in the season. "It s a natural insect," he said. "Why it s not acting as entomologists suggest .
