  • WICHE: Bagworms are on the move, slowly

    I received a call the other day about what to do with a blue spruce covered in bagworms.

    The tree is apparently covered (and large), so hand-picking was not an option. The caller said the pest was rather large, too, so I had to recommend a systemic insecticide as the treatment.

    I prefer that we catch the bagworms earlier in the season so that we can take a biological approach but this is not always the case.

  • New-author Barber is old hat at preaching

    Rev. Stephanie Barber was raised in a congregation of Southern Baptists where it just wasn’t proper or expected for women to preach or teach the word of God.
