Pest Alert: Bagworms Spotted in Porter County
Trees Affected: Pine, Spruce, Fir, Arborvitae
If the eggs in the bags survive the winter, a caterpillar will emerge in early June to eat the foliage, potentially killing your trees. If you see these small cocoons, do not mistake them for pine cones. Simply pick off the bags and dispose of them so the pest cannot re-enter your landscape. If your trees are completely infested, please consider contacting us to discuss a more efficient treatment option.
"We had the crew take down several of our trees... they were AWESOME! Showed up when they said they would, were very very detail oriented on a complicated job.. they took out three trees next to our pool and I swear there was not one branch or stick in the pool when they were done. Bob was so kind and really helpful. Our kids loved watching them and the whole crew was patient with them. They even took time to save a squirrel family. Cannot rate them high enough. We will never use anyone else!"
