Saw one good sized tent a couple years ago while driving along RT 20. Thought, Oh Boy here we go again, but never saw any others that whole season.

I'll mail you some if you miss them. :P There are plenty here.

On a side note I didnt notice any apple blossoms this year but had pear blossoms. I was in a mild drought most the spring though.

Haven't had any for a few years, but we have found 4 nests on the farm in the past 2 weeks....we burn them out...seems to work well.
