Feb. 4: 6 – 8 p.m., at the Wayne National Forest Headquarters, 13700 US 33, Nelsonville, Ohio; Ohio Department of Agriculture staff members will explain aerial treatment measures planned for this spring. The open house, one of five hosted in February in southern Ohio will offer attendees the opportunity to speak directly with those who work with the program, learn about the pest, and view maps of treatment areas.
Currently in Ohio there are 51 counties under gypsy moth quarantine, limiting the movement of regulated articles out of those counties.
To combat this problem, the department uses different types of treatment strategies to slow the spread of gypsy moth in Ohio. Officials have three programs aimed to manage the pest, including: suppression, slow-the-spread, and eradication.
