    If a small amout nothing, hand pick them off. Talstar or Seven can be applied and are cheap.

    Here is copied text on bagworms:

    Several products are available for homeowner and professional use. For homeowners, conventional insecticides such as Sevin, Dursban, diazinon, and malathion, or the microbial insecticide Bacillus thuringiensis (BT) provide satisfactory results. The BT products have very low mammalian toxicities, but are only effective against younger larvae. If large bagworms are present (more than about 3/4-inch long), a conventional insecticide probably will provide better results. For nursery and landscape professionals, other effective products include Astro, Decathlon, Ficam, Mavrik, Orthene, Pounce, Scimitar, Talstar and Tempo. Foliage should be throughly wetted with the insecticide spray in order to achieve thorough coverage. Trade names are used as examples. No endorsement is intended, nor criticism implied of similar products not named. Always read and follow directions on the label

    Hey Ray, I'm just curious as to your source.
    I'm betting there is lots of good info there!
