The gypsy moth is one of the most destructive insect pests of hardwood forests and urban landscapes in the United States. We feel this is an important insect pest that will have long-lasting effects on the forest resources and to the residents of the State of Indiana.
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Entomology and Plant Pathology, and the Division of Forestry, will be conducting public meetings to discuss the gypsy moth presence in Indiana, how the gypsy moth infestations were detected in your area, and problems associated with an infestation. We are proposing several options for treatment and eradication of the gypsy moth population. Please join us at one of the meetings listed below.
We enjoy talking about gypsy moth and would like to answer your questions and hear your comments. The comment period on these proposed treatments ends Thursday, February 12, 2009 at 4 p.m. (EST).
If you are unable to attend one of the public meetings, you may still view the information which will be presented. Click here for a PowerPoint Presentation (8.78 MB) of the meeting content. You may follow along the slide presentation with a copy of the Meeting Content Text Sheet, which is in Adobe PDF format.
