how do I get rid of tent worms in my house?
We just purchased a home in Big Fork, Montana. My daughter and her family are there now and we anticipate moving in the next few weeks. This morning she found about 90 tent worms in the basement apartment, which is where we will be living. This was after she vacuumed a few up last week. This is 4 days later. How do we get rid of them and where shall we check to see where they are coming from. There were "nests" in 2 fruit trees just prior to my daughter moving in. A violent windstorm on August 21 removed them. Now the worms are appearing only in the basement. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Joanne Bakker
