Gypsy Moth Treatments Are Coming


Gypsy moth treatments are coming to areas around Martinsburg and south of Mount Vernon this spring via the Ohio Department of Agriculture. These treatments are not harmful to humans, animals, or plants and only release a pheromone that confuses gypsy moths, disrupting their mating cycle.

Have questions or concerns about the treatments? The ODA is holding in-person and virtual open houses throughout the month of February. More info on the program, from open house times and locations to health and safety information, can be found at or at the link below.
