Looks like the late stage winter moth which I understand Mass. has had a 
major problem with, as you indicated you had last year.  I don't know if you 
have seen the update for this pest for Mass.  but this link 
http://www.umassgreeninfo.org/fact_sheets/defoliators/wm_id_man.html will 
give you the complete picture on the effect this pest has had and some 
solutions to eradicate this pest beyond what you have already done.  Hope it
