    Forest managers on new frontiers of infestation are searching for better ways to cope with the gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar). Presented herea are information and guidelines for remedial action to minimize future losses. Methods for assessing potential stand defoliation (susceptibility) and mortality (vulnerability), monitoring insect populations, and selecting action alternatives are discussed. With due consideration of management objectives, we address the primary concerns of managers who lack previous experience with the pest.
