What you can do:

All residents, especially those in neighbourhoods with a high

density of oak trees, are encouraged to manage populations on

their property by implementing the following pest management


• picking caterpillars off foliage, tree trunks and branches and

soaking them in soapy water to destroy them (May to July)

• placing sticky bands on tree trunks (May to July)

• installing burlap wraps around tree trunks and then collecting

and destroying the caterpillars (May to September)

• using pheromone traps to capture and confuse male moths

(June – August)

• scraping off and destroying egg masses (August – May)

• consult an arborist regarding Treeazin or Acecap which are

synthetic insecticides drilled into the tree trunk.

Further information is available on the City of Mississauga

website ( under Pest Management.
