    Saw our first ones today. June 24 is awefully early. Location: our business (central Iowa). Tree: mulberry. Anybody else find 'em yet? rscvp

    We're still not finding bagworms, but we expect to see 'em within two weeks.

    Welcome to climate change. :)
    It's not that unusual to see them here in the East at this time.
    Here are couple of good sites about them.


    Now, bagworms.....that's another story.

    not sure about the webworms - but have seen plenty of the tentworms on flowering crabs around these parts. Ugly darned things....

    Yup, saw some in my lawn yesterday as a matter of fact. I thought is was awful early for them too.
