Control Bagworms in Junipers Now!

Got Bagworms?  

You’ve seen them hanging from evergreens and spruce trees every summer. With our mild temperatures last winter you can expect record numbers. Left unchecked bagworm populations will grow to damaging levels very quickly. One bagworm can produce over 1,000 baby bagworms.

Late May through early June is the perfect time to control bagworms. Bagworm eggs overwinter on the leaves and needles of a host plant and hatch in late May through early June. During the egg hatch until the bagworm is about the size of a pencil eraser is the most effective time to kill bagworms with a liquid application Grass Pad Critter Gitter.

Do it now! Spray liquid Critter Gitter while temperatures are still mild, and the bagworms are small for best control. Junipers and Spruce are bagworm magnets, but bagworms will feed on just about any plant. To apply, mix Grass Pad Critter Gitter according to label specifications, then saturate the leaves and needles thoroughly spraying the ground under trees and bushes is also recommended. Liquid Critter Gitter is also useful for control of fleas, ticks, ants, cricket and chiggers in the lawn.
