It’s the buzz about town—bug season is upon us. We have just confirmed that tent caterpillars are hatching and looking for leaves to eat on Regina’s leaf-sprouting trees. And we expect the critters will be back in full force this year along with cankerworm invasions. But we’re ready for action to stop the leaf feast.
