In the South as in other places, bagworms can be a serious problem. Every year they defoliate and destroy many valuable evergreens and other landscape plants.

I happened to pick one off a plant and that same day someone asked for an ID.
Thanks for the photos and the information so we know to check not only the host plant but the nearby plants as well. Thank You! Thumbs up

You're welcome, greene. At first I didn't realize how far they could travel pulling along their bags with them. They also drop by the threads they spin and land elsewhere.
I garden for the pollinators.
