Wisconsin DNR's 2021 Gypsy Moth Treatment Plan

Wednesday, April 7th, 2021 -- 8:04 AM

(Wisconsin Ag Connection) The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture has published its 2021 gypsy moth treatment plan.

According to the Wisconsin Ag Connection, beginning in May and continuing through July, low-flying planes will spray select areas in western Wisconsin to treat outlier populations of gypsy moth.

The gypsy moth is a non-native insect with a destructive appetite for hundreds of species of trees and shrubs. Treatment efforts help limit the spread of the pest that is established in the eastern two-thirds of the state.  A total of about 95,000 at 45 sites in 14 counties are scheduled for treatment.

The affected counties include Barron, Chippewa, Crawford, Douglas, Dunn, Grant, Green, Iowa, La Crosse, Lafayette, Rusk, Trempealeau, Vernon, and Washburn.  To view online presentation on the state's treatment plan, go to: gmaerialspray.wi.gov
