Worms that Climb Walls and Strip Trees

A few days ago, we received the following question: “What kind of worms will strip trees and climb walls?” The reader gave no indication that she has seen the worm she was asking about, and in fact it isn’t clear she has any involvement with the tree-stripping, wall-climbing worms. In other words, we don’t know if the worms are stripping her trees and climbing her walls, or if she has merely heard of creatures that do this, and wants to know what these creatures are. We’ll therefore have to focus on the general matter of worms that climb walls and strip trees, and not say anything specific to our reader’s situation, and perhaps she has no worm situation to speak of anyway.
