Despite there being one or two bags hanging on one twig, it was never established that bagworrms were the cause of most of his problem.
For instance, from what I could see these were old carcasses tied on from last year. True, they may have been a source of newly hatched worms but the OP didn't say he saw any. For all the damage, there would have had to be many, highly visible active bagworms at this time in NW Ohio. For that matter, most of the bagworms around here were killed during the winter. In my city, I have only found a few survivors in very shelthered spots. Also, many leaves showed holes in the middle. In my experience, bagworm larvae only eat from the outside in.

The unfortunate part of this thread is that the OP was PO and won't share with us what he found from his "local source." (If he found out anything.)
And, as you say, that might have been helpful to others reading the thread.

I got alot out of what was posted so why say that I didnt? I also believe I thanked all that posted and helped, not sure what else I should do.

You should report what you found out with your local source.
That would help us by knowing where we were right and where we were wrong.
Hope it worked out well for you and the trees.

Minix, I would get a really good fertilizer on it soon. specifically get a spike type fertilizer you can attach to a hose and inject right into the ground.

Too late for N in trees and shrubs. K, may be appropriate, this time of year, or other necessary micros. They are going dormant now and losing leaves, not putting on new ones.

I agree. I don't know why you would put fert on insect-damaged trees (especially this time of year.)

I work alot of hrs and dont really have time to get on pc so sry I didnt post findings as soon as I got them. Had another guy come in and look and he sprayed all trees for bagworms as it had many pods on it and some other trees. We also had a termite problem at another store. It just seems like something is wrong with alot of the trees and shrubs and ground cover at all these locations.

Stressed, weak plants are more vulnerable to attack/disease.
