Carpenterworms in Cottonwoods (Horticulture/Urban IPM)
Description: Not all wood-boring insects are created equal! Most often, we think that beetles are the culprits. But this is a caterpillar that came out of a removed cottonwood tree from a shelterbelt just recently (thanks to John for the sample!). It is a carpenterworm and will be a moth when it is an adult. See this attached sheet for more information.
