Small cone-shaped growths less than three inches in length dangling from trees are created by these deceptive insect pests. Bag worms form the cones from leaf and bark remnants and hide within while they eat pine needles and tree foliage. They are prevalent in Fort Worth and homeowners mistakenly think their trees have pine cones or new buds. Not only do they infest fir trees but they also invade popular tree varieties such as maple, oak, elm and numerous others. These insidious insects target weak, vulnerable trees and left untreated, they will kill the tree. Official diagnosis is of prime importance; therefore, do not delay in contacting an experienced tree company when you observe these conical growths.
Diagnosing Bag Worms
Due to the destructive nature of bag worms, the ISA certified arborist expedites diagnostic procedures. The cones are broken apart to verify the presence of eggs and worms and trees are inspected for new cone formations and cocoons. Upon confirmed diagnosis, a tree evaluation report is presented. The arborist that treats sick trees will administer the needed treatment and a one year warranty is provided. The arbor care professional customizes a continual tree health care maintenance program to guard your trees from further insect infestation. Protecting the health of your trees is the proactive way to prevent bag worm invasion.
