Gypsy Moth Abatement
Gypsy moths are an invasive pest species in Washington. As caterpillars, they can eat hundreds of different types of plants and trees. They lack native predators and diseases, so their populations can increase quickly if they are not controlled. The Department of Agriculture has a monitoring and eradication program to keep gypsy moths from establishing a permanent breeding population in Washington.
