Juniper in trouble

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.

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