Default Bug ID

Found these on the back side of my house. Looks like they are coming in/out of the mortar. And several on the brick.

Any ideas?

Maybe a Household Casebearer Moth or Plaster Bagworm.

Larvae of a Plaster Bagworm moth. I have been seeing them around a lot lately.

The pics def. match up. But I can't find any info about them putting holes in the mortar. Do I have a bigger problem on my hands than just these moth things?

I looked at one under a stereoscope. It doesn't look like the larvae has the mouthparts to cause borrowing in mortar. After the stages to become a moth, your clothing inside your closet is probably more at risk. I found some in one of my bathroom so I had to get rid of them.

What did you do to get rid of them?

I didn't have that many so I took paper towels to pick them off the wall and threw away. If they are on the outside of your house, you might be able to pressure wash. I doubt they will hurt your masonry.
