Question:
I have been fighting a losing battle with bagworms over the past 3 years. So far, I have lost 2 of my 30 ft. blue spruces. This year I thought I had won a battle until last week when one of my 45 foot pine trees showed cocoons. I spray and pick and spray and pick but cannot seem to win this war. I burn the cocoons that I pick. Any other suggestions?
