Rita Mama: I found one of these in the bathroom of our home in Naples florida. Never
saw it before, but I will be looking for more.
Sophia Kiwie: A plaster bagworm
CaptainChaos88: Omgthat one is huge!
joseph p: i read that tey live in humidity so its best to keep ur house air
xlrEAGLE: They eat spider webs. Spider actually eat them.
Zezza Boono: Don't kill them! Get moth balls and space bags, store your sweaters. I hear
these lil guys eat spiders. I'd happily oblige them if they truly are
spider eaters. They are your friends! Yeah, they are kinda cute, huh? As
long as they're contained, lol. Much respect!
Kenji Miyamoto: we have one but they dont move around so much they seem to be struggling
deryked: Plaster bagworms (Figure 2) are similar in appearance and closely related
to clothes moths. The larvae of bagworms live in a flattened, gray,
watermelon seed-shaped case about 1/2" inch long. The case is constructed
of silken fiber and sand particles, lint, paint fragments, and other
debris. The case has a slit-like opening at each end, and the larva is able
to move around and feed from either end.
MCATDT98: They aren't harmful to clothes unless you wear a lot of wool (and who does
in FL?). They won't harm cotton or anything else. They actually feed on old
spiderwebs, which is kinda cool. Check out this link to an Indian River
County site. It tells all about them in FL.
New Era Pest Control: We have these in South Florida. Plaster bagworms are well known here! They
feed on spider webs. Get rid of the spider problem and you remove the food
source. They are however, dfficult to remove from the walls. Scraping them
off with a hard brush is needed.
chihuahuabulldog: Contact the County Extention Office in the county where you found the
insect and they ought to be able to help you out. I have no clue, but I too
would like to know. Please let us know what you find out. Thank you.
TheMedievalMan: @ElPINGAS9000 Oh yeah, real cute... until they put holes in your clothes!
chihuahuabulldog: @raoulpop Thank you. I love to learn. Now I can look it up and learn even
more. Once again, thank you. Ann
ololololol81: @raoulpop do they live in S.W.E.D.E.N? sorry for the .....
IYN Minizmal: It eat my hair . bagworm ..badworm
jonson ponce: in the philippines they are hanging on the walls
Stawiarz1234: how do you get rid of them? cause they seem to come out at night onto our
decking and then they are gone in the morning.
Florida Severe Weather Channel: Thats what they are!! Noticed them in Brevard county florida.
Morgan Dixon: Its cute :3
Nug Fairy: Thanks for posting this. I live in South Florida too and for all my life
and I have never seen one. I saw one on the wall and thought it was an ant
carrying a moth at first. Also been seeing these centipedes that come to
die on the floor.
Raoul Pop: @Stawiarz1234 I don't know. They're everywhere in South Florida. They're a
pest, so my guess is pesticides, but I don't really like to use pesticides,
they're poisonous to everything, not just these things.
TheChoujinVirus: idk if what I saw was a bagworm, but it had this lint-like shell as big as
a grain of rice and I saw this little head pop up and move about, using the
lint shell as it moved
Amner Reyes: i happened to find several of the in a matter of 2 wks, i wish i knew how
to get rid of them and i live in texas, south central, and its hot here so
i dont know.
y0nghee: i noticed that my wall has a LOT of bagworms. tomorrow i'll clean them all
michellelizabeth87: My bathroom recently has 2 and found 1 on the living room floor! Singapore
is very humid so it's common here?? I don't know but the larva here is dark
brown, not white and it's about 1 cm here.
New Era Pest Control: Plaster bagworms, are frequently found on stucco walls in high-humidity
climates, particularly Florida and Louisiana. Although plaster bagworms are
harmless, their nests are unattractive and their larvae may feed on
household rugs and clothing made of natural fibers. Regular housecleaning,
humidity control and elimination of food sources should keep the insects
off your walls and out of your home.
xlrEAGLE: They are useful scavengers. If you don't want them around keep the area
free of old spider webs and dead bugs, or make sure the spider webs have
spiders. The spider love them!
Zero14811111: I was wondering what these things were. they're everywhere in my bathroom
in Australia. weird looking creature
Jung Carlson: I almost died today when i saw one of these moving on my wall thought it
was just a piece of dust then its head popped out oooo i still have the
chills i have a slight phobia of small worm like things. I live in
california so we gottem too. Im just about done doing a complete ovehaul
cleaning of my room. they hate the cold so if you have them indoors air
conditioners will deter them.
naturegirl0789: It's a plaster bagworm, they eventually turn into moths, I just found four
in my house the other day. I live in North Florida, thought they only
existed in south Florida till now.
duff558: they are in Australia too
destroyerdogRX78: These type of things are in my house, but it's kind of like seeing a worm
pop out of a lint-like tube. And they are about maybe a centimeter and I
think it has a red vein.
abeebiec: Why they appear
Raoul Pop: @chihuahuabulldog It's a plaster bagworm. One of my readers in the know
just told me.
Raoul Pop: @ololololol81 Not to my knowledge. They live in tropical areas.
Susan Yelle: These are now IN CALIFORNIA! Found a whole bunch of them on the brick
stairs indoors. Wow. I'll hafta find out how to kill them, they are creepy!!
