Tent caterpillars can be eliminated by pulling apart the webbing, repeated, if necessary; or by applying a few drops of coal oil/gasoline to a rag tied to the end of a stick/pole, carefully igniting it before hoisting it 'neath the offending web and in seconds, whoosh ! Game over.

Ed is right. Tightly twist some newspaper and light it under the web. Burn the web quickly and carefully. It works. We have had to do it.
