Ag Dept. to Start Gypsy Moth Treatments

The Ohio Department of Agriculture will soon begin aerial treatments designed to disrupt gypsy moth mating on 74,850 acres in 9 counties, including Ross. The Slow-the-Spread program, focuses on monitoring, detecting, and reducing isolated populations to slow the gypsy moth’s movement across the state through treatments. 

Officials say airplanes will fly 100-200 feet above the tree tops and buildings to apply the treatment throughout the day. 

Weather permitting, treatments will begin in Ohio the week of June 12th and continue over the next week.
