The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, in collaboration with the USDA Forest Service and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, plans to treat localized gypsy moth populations in Allamakee and Jackson Counties. Management plans involve the aerial application of a gypsy moth specific mating disruptant to prevent adult moths from mating and ultimately reproducing.


(Update: Treatment tentatively scheduled for Thursday, June 27)

Treatments are tentatively planned for the following three sites on JUNE 27. The timing of treatment is dependent on good weather conditions, so plans may change at the last moment. For the most up-to-date treatment schedule this website can be checked periodically. Iowa's Gypsy Moth Hotline can also be reached by calling 855-497-7966 to listen to a recorded message of the latest treatment schedule.
