CHristine noticed this tree and thought it looked like it was growing mold. I am thinking it may be the start of a webworm takeover.....does anyone else have an idea what might be happening here?

Hey Techgirl -- Being new to this forum, I was doing a bit of browsing around and came upon your wintry scenes. They really are lovely!

As for your last post, it sure looks like hemlock trees infested with wooly adelgids. They're aphid-like insects that attack hemlocks, and their egg sacks look like cotton swabs. These are not good insects to have around!

Thank you!! Explore away and feel free to add stuff where you would like!! There are more photos from the winter in the Sandhill Crane and Duck threads. :cloud: Birding in the snow is definitely worth driving in it!!

I don't like insects at the best of times - I learned about webworms last summer :scared: :scared: and so I'll just hope some bird at the refuge takes care of those wooly adelgids - I'll trust that's what they are, since I have no desire to go and ask them personally :gremlin:

Thanks for pointing me to more pictures. I'll have to check them out tomorrow as I've already stayed up too late tonight.

I know what you mean about insects! :scared: The only ones I like are cute little ladybugs. I even run away from hummingbirds when I hear them flying by but don't see them...they sound just like giant flying insects. :snicker:

We have our hemlocks treated for wooly adelgids. Big problem in Penna. :foot: :gremlin:
