I live in White Birch Lakes in Farwell, MI We are being taken over by Gyspy Moths. Our Hardwood (Oak Trees) are almost bare from the leaves being eaten. Do you have any suggestions.
Clare County Michigan
Because oak trees are so tall, the main defense is an aerial application of Bacillus thuringiensis var. kurstaki (Btk), used to reduce high populations of gypsy moth caterpillars at sites that meet certain guidelines for treatment. You may wish to contact your DNR in Clare County to see if any spray programs are being planned.
