Gypsy Moth Survey

Grants and Contracts Details


We have been very successful in keeping gypsy moth out of Kentucky through close monitoring via detection and delimiting surveys. Even though it has become established in states surrounding Kentucky, this pest has not become established here. We have had three infestations in the past 25 years-all were eradicated within 3 years of discovery. These infestations were initially discovered due to the extensive yearly trapping program. Continuing and expanding the gypsy moth survey in Kentucky will continue to safeguard Kentucky's high quality oak forests.
