Gypsy Moths

Gypsy moths undergo a complete metamorphosis and there are many life stages you can intervene at to help control the population in your home landscape. Gypsy moth caterpillars are extremely abundant this year from visible caterpillars, masses of caterpillars in trees, pupae in trees, defoliated trees, and even caterpillar droppings causing issues.
