Nest architecture of a bagworm species,Clania crameri was examined. Fortytwo bags (nests) were collected from the host plant,Clerodendron indicum and number of sticks used in each bag was counted. Furthermore, length of each stick in each nest was measured (in mm) clockwise one after another serially beginning with the longest stick. The data obtained were subjected to frequency analysis and power spectrum analysis. Results clearly reveal that the larvae of bagworms do not glue together sticks of different size randomly but with a definite pattern.
