U.S. Forest Service to spray for gypsy moths near Downers Grove this week

DOWNERS GROVE – Weather permitting, the U.S. Forest Service will conduct aerial spraying for gypsy moths directly to the west of Downers Grove this week, according to the village.

The work is part of an ongoing effort to minimize the invasive impact of gypsy moths in the state. The spray will be applied by low-flying airplanes, which will appear as if they are conducting aerial stunts. The planes will disperse a tiny confetti-like material treated with a pheromone that confuses male gypsy moths and disrupts mating, according to the village.

Insecticides are not being used. For a map of the spraying areas and more info, visit www.agr.state.il.us/Environment/Pest/gypsymothinIL.html
