Descriptor: Larva(e)
Description: The green June beetle larva, (Cotinis nitada (Linnaeus), can be a serious pest of tobacco plant beds. Eggs are laid during the summer. Larvae hatch and grow to be about two inches in length. They have brown head and creamy white C-shaped bodies. June beetles overwinter in the larval stage, complete their development the following spring, and are nearly full grown when beds are started. Larvae live several inches below the soil surface and cause some damage by feeding on young tender roots of plants. They cause the most serious damage by their continual burrowing and tunneling through the soil, loosening the soil and uprooting plants.

I have discovered a problem pest on my arborvitae. The plants were dying from the ground up. The tops of shrubs looked green & healthy. Upon close inspection I found some oblong flexible 1/2 inch sacks, same color as arborvitae branches, sticking to the dead and dying branches of the shrubs. I pried one off for inspection and found the sack contained a crisp serrated pupa filled the sack. I broke open the pupa casing and a tiny 1/8 inch light brown caterpillar or centipede looking bug crawled out. I would like to know what the pest is called and how to control it. I have picked off all the sacks that were stuck to the branches. Some contained the tiny bug and some did not.
