The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) each year conducts an extensive trapping program across Ohio to detect growing populations of the invasive species Lymantria dispar, better known as the Gypsy Moth.
The ODA has recently completed an analysis of Gypsy Moth populations throughout Ohio, and aerial treatments of forested areas infested with the Gypsy Moth may begin in early to mid-May with a larvacide treatment and in mid-June with a mating disruption treatment.
Information about the Gypsy Moth and the ODA Gypsy Moth Management Program are available at www.agri.ohio.gov (click on “Programs” then “Gypsy Moth Program”).
An Open House has been scheduled for the public Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2018, 6-8 p.m. at the Seneca County Fairground, Jr. Fair Building, 100 Hopewell Ave.
Notification letters will be sent to all residents that will be affected by this treatment. The public comment period ends March 2, 2018. If you have any questions, contact ODA at 614-728-6400 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
