A pile of twig is all a Bagworm needs!!

by Sriraksha Bhagavan – Want to construct a house which you can carry anywhere you go? ask the Bagworm moth larvae which makes a home using twigs and pieces of leaves and carries it where ever it goes.

During our field work in Coorg I found something strange, I noticed a pile of tiny wood logs arranged one above the other like a tower on a Arabica plant leaf, when I went closer to it I saw this tower moving and started clicking pictures!! I took it on my hand and found some tiny larvae like thing inside it and I was not sure what it was. After some search I found that it was a Bagworm moth larvae.
