The spring cankerworm, Paleacrita vernata (Peck), and the fall cankerworm, Alsophila pome­ taria (Harris), are important as defoliators in shel­ terbelts in the northern Great Plains (Fig. 1). In recent years, P. vernata has been the dominant species. Because they seldom kill trees, canker­ worms are not considered a major pest. However, severely defoliated belts do not protect adjacent crops from severe weather stresses, and are aesthe­ tically unpleasing as well.
