In this post, you can learn how to identify and prevent bagworms based on our experience as professional bagworm exterminators. Read on to learn how to see if you have bagworms in your own backyard.
What Is A Bagworm?
Few people know bagworms belong to the moth family. In fact, bagworms become moths later in their lifecycle. Often, you find bagworms in your trees only after they have been deposited there by a female bagworm moth or bird who has eaten bagworm eggs. As their eggs reach maturity, they find a host plant on which young caterpillar larvae will feed.
How To Identify A Bagworm
Bagworm cocoons look like a football-shaped ornament hanging in a tree. To many, the bagworm cocoon looks like a leaf. The cocoon has a semi-hard casing that protects the bagworm from predators and the elements.
You are likely to find bagworms in trees that are prone to these infestations, such as juniper, pine, or cypress. These trees provide food and construction materials for the cocoon of the bagworm, but bagworms can also be found on homes of brick or stone wherever they can conveniently hang.
Why You Should Remove Bagworms
Each cocoon carries eggs inside, and, as these eggs hatch, bagworms feed on the leaves of your trees and plants. Left unchecked, bagworms can completely strip your yard of its foliage, rendering your plants helpless and threatening the lives of your favorite trees.
How Chorbie Can Remove And Prevent Bagworms
We recommend applying dormant oil to your trees in the late winter months since this oil coats plants and deters bagworms from claiming your trees as their host.
Chorbie is also available to identify bagworms in your trees and plants as well as to apply a systemic pesticide around your home. All unprotected worms will succumb to its effects.
The cocooned bagworm is safely protected from pesticides while in its casing, so we recommend and provide manual removal by trimming your trees and plants of all egg-carrying cocoons as well.
