Gypsy Moth Alert

This website is dedicated to providing information and advice about gypsy moths.

Gypsy moths are nasty pests. They eat the leaves off of trees! They mess all over cars, patios, decks, and driveways. And they are always on the move. If they haven't bothered you yet, they may next year. Get prepared to fight them.

During 2007, Burlington County, NJ suffered a serious infestation of Gypsy Moths which caused extensive damage to trees on both public and private properties.

We spent the spring and much of the summer of 2007 fighting Gypsy Moths, and learning as much as we could about them so as to better combat them.

On this website we present what we have learned about the gypsy moths from our experience and research. We give you a brief history of the enemy (Gypsy Moths), along with helpful and hopefully useful information. Our goal is to show some of the things that you can do yourself to combat gypsy moths.

Even though we are located in New Jersey, the information provided here is useful no matter where you live.

We invite you to explore our website by using the navigation bar on the left.
