Why are we spraying for caterpillars?

Edit 3/17/17: It seems the new PA Contact for spraying this year is Triple F Flying.  Source WNEP.


To the Editor:
Please do not hire the outfit from Georgia to fly over your house and spread poison throughout our environment.  The following article was posted to Facebook by the Audobon Society of Rhode Island in response to a person asking why they found these dead songbirds after having their trees sprayed.  This outfit from Georgia, "Bruces Flying Service" has a "PA Contact" listed in their ad of 570-595-2303.

So, I was checking my voicemail this morning and there was one from a caller who said that she had her trees sprayed for caterpillars – trees occupied by three bird feeders - and now, she is upset that there are no birds at all for her to watch. She wonders if the spray could possibly have something to do with it. (Yes, spraying pesticides on your trees will have an effect on the songbirds.) It is not uncommon for us to get inquiries such as these, and it is with great frustration and sadness that we often are faced with educating people after the damage has been done.
