DescriptionWithin the last ten years considerable research has been directed toward the development of a gypsy moth monitoring system for project planning at a regional level and for making control decisions at a local level. Pheromones and pheromone-baited traps have been developed and widely used and several egg mass sampling techniques have also been developed. Recently these sampling techniques have been combined into a pheromone trap-based monitoring system which uses pheromone trap results to assist in prioritizing areas to received egg mass samples. This approach has also made extensive use of graphical presentations using geographic information systems. This paper describes the status of monitoring tools and systems for determining gypsy moth densities for management purposes and areas in need of continued research.
