Signs of Bagworms
Sudden/dramatic changes in your evergreen trees (thinning & weakening).
Something that looks like a mini pine cone hanging from a branch (these insects camouflage well). The spindle shaped "bags" are 1-2" long.
Color change: trees become pale or brown.
If your tree is juniper, arborvitae, spruce, pine, cedar or fir - this is common bagworm territory.
Infestations will lead to a tree being stripped of all of its leaves or needles (on an evergreen, the needles will not grow back and attacked branches often die).
If the bags you see wiggle. Bag worms live their entire lifecycle in their bags and will move along branches as they feed.
