Re: Something is eating my tree leaves
black dots likely = frass, aka bug poop. The inchworms sound like a looper of some sort, around here I would say bruce spanworm would be the likely culprit, it may be the same little beast out your way. BtK is a good control product but depending on the cycle it may be too late to spray for this season. consider tanglefoot paste in the fall and BtK next spring about the middle to end of april.
