Juniper in trouble

luis_pr(7b/8a Hurst, TX)June 15, 2010

The following photos show the damage that some caterpillars appear to be doing to a juniper and other nearby plants. Can someone identify this pest and suggest some controls? I am ready to go and get some Bt by now!!!

I live in Hurst Texas and have had some Gulf Fritillary Butterflies make "a home" (ie, chrysalis) near another shrub but these chrysalises appear to be smaller in size and the juniper looks really bad now.

TIA,

Luis

Bagworms. Not a chrysalis. The larvae hide out in them while eating.
