I have tried ortho's systemic and the tent worms keep coming back to 2 blue spruce trees. I have been picking them off by hand which helps but what is the cure?

You can control tent worms with sprays of Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis). Bt is a bacterium which acts as a stomach poison and is fatal to caterpillars. Best wishes with your spruce trees.
