I have a campground that we go to for the summer and we have so many caterpillars all over and now there are little brown balls and falling leaves coming down with wholes in them. Is there a way to get rid of the caterpillars and especially all the mess?

I'm not sure what kind of caterpillars you are dealing with or if it is even feasible to try and control them in a campground. The bacterium Bt (bacillus thuringeinsis) controls caterpillars without harming anything else so you may be able to use this product on the affected trees. It is sold as Dipel or Thuricide in garden centers. Hope this helps.
