Hello. Since we are a university based volunteer service I am unable to recommend commercial services. My best advice is to contact the county or township office where you live to find out if there is a spraying program In your area. It is rarely effective for a single homeowner to try and control Gypsy moths by spraying. As a homeowner the best thing to do is familiarize yourself with the egg masses and destroy them. There are many photos online but look for ones with .edu in the address since that is researched information from universities.
