Bagworms

Bagworms can defoliate trees and shrubs and can be very destructive. Light bagworm infestations, particularly on shrubs and small trees, can effectively be controlled by hand picking the bags from the infested plants. These bags must be disposed before the eggs hatch in June. New plants should always be carefully inspected for the presence of bagworms before planting. Half-grown to nearly full-grown bagworm caterpillars are difficult to control. If you notice the presence of bagworms at any time of year, give American a call. One of our technicians will present a plan to control this pest.
