Gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar (L.)) populations in the United States are constantly spreading to the west and south, although spread is slowed significantly due to the activity of the Slow the Spread Program (Tobin & Blackburn 2007). As gypsy moth spreads, newly established populations can increase quickly. We investigated the period of time required for the entomopathogens and parasitoids infecting gypsy moth to catch up with newly established gypsy moth populations.
