    When they are still in the cacoon there nothing but pickin and a stoopin. Any good systemic insecticide applied to all the plants and trees in the area will get them as they first eat. I like Merit cause of the long term effect. But at $60.00 a 30lb bag it might be more than you want to spent. I think it is worth it. Cygon Is a good systemic and if i remeber right it is listed as a control for bag wormsin the book. LOL

    Other than pickin by hand, use Orthene.
