There are web/bag worms on my oldest Oak tree. Trouble is, i can't reach it. Suggestions?
Here's an up close look

I took this picture with the camera on the top of my head. (It took a few tries especially with the sun in my eyes! )

If I'm interpreting what I think I'm seeing correctly, could it be this?:

Something that zooms up and down cleaning like that sounds like it would be helpful with housework Hilarious!

Well that sure is a new one on me! I'm glad I found this thread & learned something new today. If I had seen that on any of my trees I would have been freaked out wondering what in the world it was.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I guess I have a really dirty tree as the web is about 15 ft long now and they are traveling downward. I so want to spray them out of the tree so convince me again? These are benef-icial bugs/ bark lice right??

Maybe these Texas references will help:

If it still looks like the above then yes, you can continue to restrain yourself Hilarious!
