Many Mt. Laurels have been attacked by a caterpillar type worm. This worm is the larval stage of a moth. The caterpillars also leave a webbing in the area where they feed. The worms can be ignored or knocked off the plant with a stream of water if the infestation is not too severe. Infestations that are creating significant defoliation should be treated with an insecticide. Additional information on this pest, including some specific control products can be found at the link below.
