Gypsy Moth aerial spraying to begin
Residents of 15 western and central Wisconsin counties can expect to see and hear loud, low-flying planes as early as sunrise, starting in early-mid May.
Small yellow planes will be treating for invasive gypsy moth caterpillars, which may defoliate many kinds of trees, causing stress and potentially tree death. The DNR and DATCP are leading the treatment efforts against the gypsy moth.
These counties will have treatment sites: Barron, Bayfield, Buffalo, Burnett, Chippewa, Crawford, Dane, Douglas, Dunn, Eau Claire, Grant, Green, Lafayette, Rusk, and Vernon.
