Description

What To Do About Lymantria dispar dispar (aka Gypsy Moths)?

Joe Elkinton, Professor in the Department of Environmental Conservation in the College of Natural Sciences at UMASS

**New Date Tuesday, Feb. 26 7-8pm***


Populations of Gypsy Moths (Lymantria dispar) have been building in the Valley during these last several years. Many of us have experienced this first hand. Come learn about this insect, its life cycle, and preferred food tree species. What are the predators and diseases that can control thismoth? What can be done to reduce infestations? And what can we do as property owners for our own trees and woods? Joe has been researching this species and will bring up-to-date information about this rapidly changing field of inquiry. Come ready to take notes and ask your questions. Free, registration and donations appreciated.
