#27 _ (06-03-19) -  WMJ-3435 webworms on pecan.jpg

Webworms are insect pests that produce a spider-like maze of webs that envelope leaves near the tips of branches. While they prefer mulberry and pecan, webworms will feed on a wide variety of other landscape trees and shrubs.

The last days of June ended with an abundance of rainfall and a few mornings with surprisingly cooler temperatures.

July has arrived and that means the year is about half over and the days are getting shorter. It also means the warm temperatures of summer have set in for sure.
