Do you have Evergreen, oak, or perhaps cedar trees in your yard that have sacs on the branches? What you are actually seeing is cone-shaped cocoons that host bagworms. Bagworms are insects that infest trees like oak and cedar trees, but primarily make their homes and eat the foliage of Evergreen trees and arborvitae shrubs. Homeowners and business owners tend to not notice them until they see defoliation to the tree. If you have just noticed that your trees are infested with bagworms, call Fort Worth Arborist Co. today at 817-975-0180 for professional bagworm treatment in Fort Worth, TX. We are able to remedy the situation before the bagworms destroy your beautiful trees.
How We Treat Your Plants and Trees
We want to do as little harm to your tree and be as humane as possible, which is why our first bagworm treatment solution is to handpick the bagworms. Bagworms start to feed on trees starting in June and quit feeding in August. Once they stop feeding, you can use any kind of insecticide, as they are protected by their sac. If we are able to remove them in the fall or winter before they hatch, we can prevent re-infestation. Once we have removed the bagworm sacs and disposed of them, we can continue to monitor to see if they re-emerge.
If we happen to find bagworms when they hatch in April or when they start to feed again in June, we can go another route with the bagworm treatment for your Fort Worth, TX home or business is to spray eggs and larvae with insecticides. Depending on what season you find the bagworms will determine if we can spray or handpick them from your trees and shrubs.
