Bag Moth

The caterpillars of this moth live in silk bags that hang from trees and shrubs that they eat. They disguise the bags bug attaching pieces of twig and foliage.

Identifying

The common name of this insect refers to the strong silk bag made as a refuge by the caterpillar. The bag is brown to greyish, often covered with fragments of vegetation, and so tough it cannot be torn open easily.

The female bagworm moth is a stricking irridecent blue with orange wing tips.

Solving

If there are a significant number of these caterpillars they can be controlled by spraying the affected trees and shrubs with PLANThealth Insect Hit and/or Insect Hit Granules, or regularly with Organic Insect Control .
