    Hartfield Spraying Service will do aerial spraying for Gypsy Moth suppression in Lake Township in the coming days.
    Depending on the weather, suppression spraying will be done between May 25 and June 15.
    The material to be applied is Foray 48B (Bacillus thuringiensis), which is a naturally occurring bacterium that kills caterpillars that are feeding on leaves at the time of application.
    When fully grown, a Gypsy moth they will be about 2 inches long, hairy, have five pairs of blue dots followed by six pairs of red dots along its back.
    Gypsy moths do not kill trees directly they eat the leaves and defoliate the trees.
    Severe defoliation of a tree can add to other stresses from the weather extremes. Stressed trees are more vulnerable to disease or other pest infestation that can cause death.
    Gypsy moth populations go through cycles in which the population will increase for several years then decline, and then increase again.
    Updates on suppression efforts can be found on Lake Township's website at www.laketownship.net .
