Bagworms are currently active in several tree species and now is the time to be checking yours! Host trees include: juniper, redcedar, spruce, pine, arborvitae, crabapple, sycamore, honeylocust, maple, elm and many other trees. Larvae are currently feeding on needles and leaves of trees creating small cone-shaped ‘bags’ up to 2” long that hang from twigs. The larvae pupate within the bags in late summer, with male moths emerging in September.
