That's the wrong stuff to use. It's only effective on the adult stage, not the larval. You want BT. http://store.arbico-.../inch-worm.html The trichogramma wasps are an excellent long term control. Put them out several times per year until they establish a permanent colony in your neighborhood. They take care of the webworms that destroy trees too.
