Gypsy Moth Treatment in Westville June 26th

Indiana DNR


Next week an aerial treatment to disrupt the mating process of gypsy moths will take place in Westville. Indiana DNR State Entomologist Phil Marshall told the Region News Team one or more low-flying airplanes will treat the site which helps to slow down the progression of gypsy moth in that area. Marshall says the application being used in Westville was first used on the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore area, from Michigan City to Ogden Dunes, in 1999, and has been used in other instances in northwest Indiana ever since, posing no health threat to people or animals.

The aerial treatment in Westville is scheduled for Thursday, June 26th, and will start in the early morning and continue until completed, weather permitting. For more information, including a link to a map of the treatment area in Westville, visit http://www.in.gov/dnr/entomolo/4531.htm
