Abstract:In recent years bag worms, Thyridopteryx ephemeraeformis (Haw.), have apparently moved northward in Ohio. Damage now occurs throughout the state, but tends to appear in cycles. Ornamental arborvitae and juniper are injured most severely. For many years an arsenical spray applied when the larvae are small has been recommended for the control of this insect. Because home owners fail to observe the small bag worms, newer materials were tested in control of the insect in more advanced stages. Dieldrin appeared more effective than lead arsenate and malathion killed most of the full grown larvae even though feeding had stopped.
