....they give me the whilly's!!!!
Is this a problem that is all over the US? I dont know - but every year when the trees around here start blooming, you can see these little webs start forming!
Ricky & I keep an eye out on our trees every year because you have to get ahold of them as soon as you see them, because you have to get rid of them or they grow, FAST & they can damage & kill your tree. I cant tell you how many times I've looked out & said, I see one & I have to point it out to Ricky so he knows where to spray at.... & I tell you what, its crazy because the next day, there will be another two or three starting up! Exactly the reason you have to get them right away!
And have you ever seen what's IN these things???? OH my - this is where the whilly's come in! They aren't called "Bag Worms" for no reason! There are hundreds of little worms inside of this cocoon that are squirming around... UGH... I now feel like they are all over me...(Anyone else now scratching their head or their arms?)
Ricky's good about killing these little monsters!
Driving down the express way, there are hundreds of beautiful blooming trees everywhere. But you can see trees that are COVERED in bag worms. These trees do not get treated - & you can tell, when the other trees are fully bloomed & ready for summer, these trees are damaged, not as beautiful as they should be.
It also gives me the creeps to drive by them & see these poor trees being taken over by this cob webby looking mess of nastiness! I'm always feeling like these worms are dropping on my car...ewww....
But it really struck me this morning driving down seeing these trees covered....how if we don't take care of sin in our lives, how it can keep growing, how it can kill us, leaving us where we wouldnt bloom as beautiful as we should be able to! How it can kill parts of us that have a hard time recovering! How nasty it is!
And then I thought of these trees that could never get the treatment it needs because they dont really belong to anyone - they are just on the side of the road! And how the trees in our yard, we take care of - killing these little boogers!
Do you realize that you BELONG to God! He can give you treatment - the healing! He has the power to kill the sin! But how many dont know that - or want to accept that? And then the sin just keeps killing....
Who would've thought that a bunch of worms could remind me of belonging to God & His healing....
OK... gotta go scratch my head some more now!
