worms eating pine tree needles

I have black and yellow worms eating literally every needle off of my weeping pine. They are everywhere on the tree. What pesticide can I use to get rid of them in a hurry? I have liquid 7 on hand. Will that work or should I get something else?

I had that problem too. I used a spray by Ortho for catepillars. I think it's called Orthane. To be organic, you could also use a spray of 1 TBS. dishwashing liquid to 1 gallon of water. It's a contact spray, so be sure and hit the little guys.
