dealing with bagworms in the fall
Every article talks about managing bag worms in May as ideal. Had I known they were around in May, I'd have happily done something but I didn't. It's late August. I discovered them today on my nearly dead evergreen bush that I never liked so that isn't a problem but the hundreds of bagworms emerging from their bags have got to go. What do I do? There are too many to pick off. I plan to get rid of the bush, but won't they all jump ship while I'm doing that? Any advice for August treatment of bagworms would be much appreciated.
