Lymantria dispar moth

Areas of Ontario have recently experienced infestations of the Lymantria dispar (formerly known as “gypsy moth”.) These specific outbreaks/infestations happen in cycles, often occurring every seven to 10 years, with outbreaks lasting three to five years. 

The County has prepared a list of recommended actions you can take to protect your trees during each life stage of the Lymantria dispar moth.
