Gypsy Moth Spraying sign-up
The West Virginia Department of Agriculture is currently taking sign-ups for their cooperative private landowner gypsy moth suppression program. When signing up the WVDA will conduct an egg mass survey on the property to be sprayed to determine if the density of the insects is high enough to warrant spraying. Additionally, areas eligible for the spraying program must contain 50 contiguous acres of woodland.
For more information or an application please call the WVU Extension at 304-799-4852.
