My name is McKenzi Waliczek and I am with the Lake St. Clair (LSC) Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (CISMA) in Macomb and St. Clair counties. The Lake St. Clair CISMA was contacted by a landowner in Casco Township, St. Clair County about a Gypsy Moth issue. They have a dense infestation and are interested in controlling the moths next season. Just at ground level, they removed over 2 gallons of eggs for the trees in 15 acres and can see more egg masses higher in the trees.
I heard of a Gypsy Moth treatment program and was hoping to gain additional information about this program and any other potential treatments programs / funding opportunities. Any information would be greatly appreciated, especially if the state or local municipalities are planning to cover localized spraying programs in 2021.
