Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) gypsy moth aerial treatment project Update
The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) is in the process of treating four areas in North Eastern Minnesota to eradicate the Gypsy Moths detected last fall. The location of aerial operations will be the cities of Cloquet, Duluth, Two Harbors and for an isolated block along White Iron Lake in northern Lake County (See Map Below).
FIRST ROUND OF GYPSY MOTH AERIAL OPERATIONS COMPLETE
On Monday June 4th the MDA was able to complete the Lakeside, Duluth, Two Harbors, the block near White Iron Lake in northern Lake County and a portion of the Cloquet block. The Cloquet block was completed on June 5th.
SECOND ROUND of APPLICATIONS SCHEDULED
The MDA plans to conduct the second and final application either June 12-14, or June 18-19.
NOTES from the MDA:
To help area citizens stay informed, the MDA has set up an Arrest the Pest Info Line at 1-888-545-MOTH. The info line will offer the latest details about treatment dates and times.
The MDA's website (www.mda.state.mn.us/gmtreatments) also has information about gypsy moths, control efforts and the ability for individuals to sign up for an automatic email/text notifications.
This is the best way for citizens to follow the operational plan throughout the project.
