Pear Tree Leaves Are Being Eaten By Lots Of Small Green Worms

Question From: J. Miller - Shasta Lake, California, United States
Q: Greetings! : ) Thanks you for your assistance. My pear trees have hundreds or more small green worms, 1-3 on each leaf, devouring the leaves. They appear to have a slightly darker green stripe on the top sides and are almost translucent. What are they and what Natural remedy can I use to rid them?

A: Judy, take a sample to your local independent garden center or nursery for a positive ID ASAP.  They can recommend a product that is environmentally friendly. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
