Gypsy Moth Spray Update 5/23/2022:
We have completed this season's aerial gypsy moth treatments in our area.
I will be back within the next 2-3 weeks to do a post-spray evaluation and let you know how things look.

Gypsy Moth Spraying Update:
"We plan to start aerial spraying in the West Michigan area beginning Monday, May 23, weather permitting. There will be 2-3 helicopters spraying various areas in West Michigan during that time, so it will be difficult to say exactly which blocks will be sprayed at a given time. The applicators usually start around 7am, and we will stop for the day when/if the weather conditions become unsatisfactory (high wind, possible rain, low humidity)."
