This coming mid to late June, the areas depicted in the map links listed below are scheduled to receive an aerial application of mating disruption intended to eliminate gypsy moths.
By introducing this synthetic pheromone in areas of light infestation, males are not able to locate the females, hence mating is prevented, reproduction ceases, and the unwanted infestation is eliminated.
Weather pending, the applications may occur any day of the week, and the overall treatment should only be a 1 to 2 day event. For questions and concerns, please contact our DeKalb office at 815-787-5476. The areas scheduled to receive the treatments are shown in the following map links:
