2017 Another Bad Year of Gypsy Moths
Attachment NameAttachment SizeAttachment Date
Size: 1M
Last Updated: 2017/1/23
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation is predicting another bad year for gypsy moth infestation.  The continued drought condition has led to the reduction of a beneficial fungus that helps keep the gypsy moth population under control.  This factor, coupled with stressed tree conditions is expected to result in a second year of extensive gypsy moth growth.  Please refer to the attached species fact sheet for information on control of this non-native pest.  Early intervention is key!  Thank you for your help.
