Gypsy Moth

Updated as of April 21, 2021

The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) Division of Forest Pest Management will not be conducting a Gypsy Moth spray suppression program for private lands located in Pike County in 2021. DCNR survey results indicate a low number of new Gypsy Moth egg masses.

A lack of sightings and complaints also indicate that numbers of egg masses and/or caterpillars have been reduced. DCNR will continue to monitor Gypsy Moth defoliation and populations throughout 2021 and into 2022.

Additional questions regarding the Gypsy Moth, the insecticide or this spray suppression program can be directed to the Pike County Gypsy Moth Coordinator.

Pike County residents play an important role in staying vigilant against this invasive. If you spot a Gypsy Moth, contact the District:
