Gypsy moth treatments completed for year

With the completion of the aerial treatments to disrupt the mating process of gypsy moths  scheduled this morning at sites in and south of Warsaw, the Department of Natural Resources has completed this year's aerial treatment program for gypsy moth.

Maps of the areas treated and other pertinent information are at gypsymoth.IN.gov. While the application poses no health threat to people, pets, livestock or other animals, individuals in the treatment areas may notice the small green flakes on their vehicles. Washing vehicles promptly with soap and water will remove the flakes.

Anyone with questions about this project may call toll free 1-877-INFO DNR (463-6367) between 8:15 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
