Evidently, readers are concerned about their pecan trees, as our very last article was about how Catawba worms affect pecan trees, and now we are charged with answering a question about a pecan tree infested with large white worms. The reader is wondering what the white worms are, and he is also keen to remove the pest. So, we have a classic identification-and-removal question: what are white worms on our reader’s pecan trees, and how can he get rid of them?
A reader wrote to us with a very simple question a little while ago: what effect do Catawba worms have on pecan trees? Nothing else was written, so we aren’t sure if the reader is dealing with Catawba worms in some way, or if perhaps he is just interested in this one very specific question. Regardless, it’s a slightly puzzling question to be interested in because Catawba worms should have no effect on pecan trees. So, the answer to our reader’s question – none – is perhaps the easiest we’ve ever supplied.
