Next year will be another bad gypsy moth year, but people have time to prepare

Gypsy moth caterpillars caused major damage to trees in the area this summer, but they will likely return next year.

Executive Director of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Yates County, Arlene Wilson, says they have a three year cycle every twenty years and next year will be year three.


She said now is a good time to come up with a good plan for the spring, like reaching out to an applicator of pesticides.

It is up to those that own the property to take care of the infestation and not the government.
