Bagworms are out in force

I've seen bagworms create their decorative bags from many different plants. Most often though it's been with the evergreen leaves of arborvitae. I've seen bagworms creeping across sidewalks, hanging from cement stairs, and hanging from plants. I didn't expect to see this bagworm hanging from this deciduous shrub, I think it was a hydrangea. The structure had great architecture with dried leaf curls and remnants of flowers stuck to the side. If you want the real details about bagworms check out the latest issue of Home, Yard, & Garden from the University of Illinois.
