bagworm silk strands

Asked August 12, 2018, 5:30 PM EDT

I understand that bagworms should be cut away rather than just pulling them off. Pulling them off will leave a silk strand behind that encircles the twig. What is the reason for not wanting to leave this silk strand?

Hi,

I don't know why. I can't see where it would make a difference.
