    I'm finding hundreds of tiny (1") worms or worm-like insects on my sidewalk and driveway. They come out at night and disappear during the day. Any idea what they are? Should I spray?

    Uh, we don't talk about things like that here....
    just kidding. Maybe the gypsy moths are back in town.
    I have not noticed the wormies. Are they black?
    I will look tonight.
    I remember about 12 years ago in Maryland, they were climbing all over the outside of the house, really weird. Those were gypsy moths.[?]

    Gypsy Moths spawn in Deciduous trees. You can tell be the mass of webbing in the tree. They will kill the tree and move on to the next tree so if you see them tell the HOA if they are in common areas. If it's your tree get a tree doctor/pest control.

    Other than that we'd need more info on the worm to identify it. Color, size, legs?, antennae?, squishy or hard shell? Give a good description. It's probably just some larvae.
