    Description

    Current measures for gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar L.) control emphasize the use of pheromones, growth regulators, and biopesticides. One of the biopesticides, Bacillus thuringiensis kurstaki (Btk), will continue to be necessary for immediate control of gypsy moth and other forest lepidopteran outbreaks. Although Btk can be a highly effective control for gypsy moth and other forest lepidopteran pests, it is recognized to affect a wide array of foliage feeding lepidopterans. Natural enemies of spring caterpillars may also be indirectly impacted.
