Bagworms overwinter as eggs within bags fastened to twigs and this year they appear to have overwintered well. I have had multiple reports the eggs have hatched this past week a little later than normal. Immediately after hatching, some of the caterpillars release a streamer of silk and are blown by the wind, establishing new infestations on nearby trees. That’s why it can be so devastating on cedar trees in windbreaks.
