Gypsy Moth Web Salon

Extensive trapping and surveying are performed each year to locate gypsy moth. After initial surveys on the ground and through the air are performed, program mangers review their findings. If a moth problem has been determined, management options are considered and implemented. Projects include the aerial application of biological insecticides and pheromone flakes. The following are various images and movie clips of gypsy moth management, from surveying to application. Images of defoliation, healthy egg masses and insects resembling the gypsy moth are included.
