Whether changing residences or simply transporting firewood, you may be relocating the Gypsy Moth and potentially damaging tress of another location. When left untreated, an infestation of Gypsy Moths can damage up to 13 acres of foliage in one season!
JP McHale Pest Management wants you to be mindful when you move to a new home, or when you take firewood with you for camping or outdoor bonfires. Outdoor patio furniture and firewood may be infested with this Gypsy Moth, whether it be the eggs, caterpillars or adult moth itself.
The USDA suggests proper inspection of these materials before you move or head out for a weekend of fun-filled camping…you wouldn’t want to accidentally transport the Gypsy Moth to a new area!
The USDA provides control and utilizes various methods and materials when infestation covers significant ground. Here at JP McHale Pest Management, our Arbor Care program provides our customers with an 8-application-program that covers Gypsy Moths and other seasonal insects that may be posing a problem.
