Late last month, Wilton resident Jean Tompkins found a webby nest in a weigela shrub at her Skunk Lane home. After informing neighbors about her discovery, Tompkins said, a few of them reported finding similar nests in their trees as well. These nests belong to webworms.
Webworms, also known as “fall webworms,” are native North American insects that spin sticky webs on plants in their caterpillar stage.
