This question of the week comes from a client who had noticed something odd in her lilac bush.
Q: Is this from tent caterpillars and should I remove it ASAP?
A: Although it looks like it may be from tent caterpillars since it has a webby look, it is actually a hummingbird nest.
These tiny nests are always a delight to come across and will not harm the lilac bush. We do not come across these very often, but hopefully next time it will have some baby hummingbirds!
Thank you for the question!
