Killing off the caterpillars

Tent Caterpillars
Tent Caterpillars

ST.PAUL, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- If you notice a low flying airplane flying over a Minnesota lake, the pilot is likely spraying for forest tent caterpillars.

The chemical used is called Foray -- a form of bacteria found naturally in the soil.

Ryan Lubben is with West Central Ag-Air Sprayer and says the chemical only affects tent caterpillars.

Lubben says often times lake associations and property owners get together and have an area sprayed for the tent caterpillars and split the cost.
