GYPSY MOTH SPRAY MAPS ARE NOW AVAILABLE AT THE SUPERVISOR'S OFFICE
Now is the time for us to begin planning our attack on the Gypsy
moth. In the spring, late April-early May, the new caterpillars
will emerge from their cocoons and begin feeding on the new leaves
forming on our trees.
The best time to spray is in the spring. Because the young caterpillars
crawl to the top of the trees for feeding, aerial spraying can
be effective. Where aerial spraying is not practical, (less than
10 acres) ground level spraying should take place. The chemical
spray is highly regulated and environmentally friendly and, as
a result it is not 100% effective.
spraying of infected trees on your property, or private property,
is your responsibility. The Township will not be spraying for the Gypsy Moth this year.
