  • Like most caterpillars, bagworms are voracious eaters as they store up calories for growth, metamorphosis and reproduction. Now is the time they do the majority of their damage to evergreen trees and shrubs, so be on the lookout for activity.  
    A large infestation can literally strip an evergreen of nearly all its needles. 
    The life cycle of a bagworm begins in late May to early June when hundreds of larvae emerge from almond-shaped bags from last year.   As the larvae hatch, they begin to feed immediately on the foliage of the plant.

  • File this under “stuff you should know” -- If you visit the Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona, it’s highly frowned upon to take home pieces of petrified wood -- and it’s illegal.
    However, that doesn’t stop people from doing it.
    Evidently, they’re not aware that these contraband souvenirs are cursed.
    As far back as the 1930s, people who pocketed these pieces of wood-turned-to-stone have reported that their sticky fingers have resulted in bad luck.
