The gypsy moth, is one of North America's most devastating invasive forest pest. The gypsy moth is know to feed on the foliage of hundreds of species of trees and shrubs in North America but prefers Oak trees. When gypsy moth populations reach high levels, trees may be completely defoliated by feeding caterpillars.
Indiana citizens can help combat this pest by understanding the gypsy moth problem and learning about its management. Please visit the updated Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Gypsy Moth treatment web page at http://www.in.gov/dnr/entomolo/4531.htm.
