Hi, Samantha,

The best strategy to get rid of winter moth on your trees is to spray Bonide All Seasons spray to the bark and branches in the winter – this will kill any of the eggs on the trees. Then come spring, applying a band of Tanglefoot Insect Barrier will prohibit adults from climbing up the trees to lay more eggs. Finally, once you notice the caterpillars or any munched leaves, spray your trees with either Monterey Garden Insect Spray or Monterey Bt to kill the caterpillars doing the damage.

Hope this helps!
