The fall webworm constructs webbed sacks around twigs and branches, which may enclose leaves. The larvae remains within the silk netting (occurring through late summer into autumn) while feeding on leaves and expanding the wedding in search of more food. Most trees recover and will re foliate. If fall webworms feed on a particular tree year after year, then the tree may suffer long-term damage.
Insect Control is usually not warranted since damage is rarely severe enough to put the tree in jeopardy and the feeding occurs near the end of the growing season
