USDA APHIS and its partners unite to stop the spread

USDA APHIS works in close partnership with Gypsy Moth Slow the Spread Foundation, Inc., and the United States Forest Service to trap for gypsy moth in noninfested areas:

  • Trapping to capture male moths before they can locate and mate with females
  • Mating disruption to confuse males by saturating an area with pheromones to prevent them from finding and mating with females
  • Biological insecticides (Btk, Gypchek) and chemical insecticides
