Gypsy Moth



Gypsy moths are not large but the ability for their populations to erupt into massive numbers make them a serious threat to trees in certain parts of the country.  They also have to ability to hitch hike (like gypsies) to various parts of the country on cars and trucks and infest other parts of the country.

Control:  If gypsy moths are left untreated for more than one season, death or severe damage to trees is most likely to occur.  When gypsy moths are found, notify your county extension agent immediately.  Many cities will spray your infected trees for you.  Bacillus (BT) and Permethrin SFR are both very effective in killing moth larvae of all types.
