Help ID please? Pat
CLOSED: To squish or not to squish?
This looks suspiciously like an evergreen bagworm, Thyridopteryx ephemeraeformis - see https://www.insectidentification.org/insect-description.php?identification=Evergreen-Bagworm-Moth
In which case, destroy.
Thank you, Flap doodle! Interesting because I have no conifers or arborvitae in my yard. This one was attached to my deck.
But! GONE now.
Have a lovely spring, lovepat
