COMBATING THE ELEVATED 2020 GYPSY MOTH POPULATION

Gypsy moth caterpillars are extremely abundant this year and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Wyoming County has been getting calls on everything from visible caterpillars, masses of caterpillars in trees, pupae in trees, defoliated trees, and even caterpillar droppings causing issues.

Gypsy moths undergo a complete metamorphosis and there are many life stages you can intervene at to help control the population in your home landscape. 

Visit the NYSDEC website for up to date information on understanding and controlling gypsy moths.

The Connecticut Dept. of Energy and Environmental Protection has good information on Gypsy Moth as well.
