Our pest control services are specifically designed to address bagworm infestations. These infestations primarily occur outdoors, specifically in vegetation.

Supreme IT, the ultimate pest control solution, is a powerful insecticide specifically designed to target and eliminate Bagworms.

Our pest control solution boasts an extended residual effect that diligently eliminates pests for a remarkable duration of up to 90 days post-application.

For optimal application of Supreme IT, it is recommended to combine water with a hand pump or hose-end sprayer.

Next, incorporate Supreme IT into the mixture at a rate of 0.18 to 0.25 fl. oz. per gallon, ensuring thorough coverage for an area of 1,000 sq. ft.

Calculate the square footage of your lawn to ascertain the precise quantity of Supreme IT required for comprehensive coverage.

Proceed to combine the suitable amount with water in your sprayer. Ensure a thorough shaking of the contents and activate your sprayer by pumping it, thus preparing for application.

Ensure optimal timing for your pest control treatment coincides with the emergence of Bagworms from their cocoons, typically occurring in late May or early to mid-June.

Apply the Supreme IT onto your tree, ensuring thorough coverage to effectively target and eliminate Bagworm larvae. Employ a fan spray setting for optimal and consistent coverage.

When dealing with Bagworms that are out of reach for a pump-up sprayer, it may be necessary to utilize a ladder to approach the Bagworms and direct the sprayer using a pinstream nozzle setting.

Efficiently remove the bags from your trees and submerge them in a bucket of specially formulated soapy water. We recommend securely bagging and promptly disposing of them at a safe distance from your property.

Don’t forget to schedule a Supreme IT spray session during the late May and early to mid-June period, which is when those pesky Bagworms will be emerging from their bags.
