With a few days of some warmer temperatures the past couple of weeks, you may be thinking about your landscape and trees. How did your coniferous trees make it through the winter? If you have trees that have been damaged by wind or or they are just over grown, it would be wise to prune them if you haven’t already. If you have had problems with your trees in the past with insects and/or diseases, it is important to evaluate them this spring to see if they look healthy.
While we have had an ongoing battle with bagworms for several years and have reduced their numbers significantly in southeast Nebraska, there are still bagworm infestations in some areas. Last year was one of the worse years we have had for bagworm infestations in southeast Nebraska in recent years. In southeast Nebraska, the larvae emerged over several weeks during the summer, but usually beginning around Memorial Day.
