The MDA, in collaboration with federal, state, and local partners, is proposing to treat isolated gypsy moth populations in Chisholm, Lakeville, and Stillwater in the spring of 2019.

A state monitoring program found a high number of moths in the three areas in 2018. Follow-up site visits also found gypsy moth egg masses. This indicates there are reproducing gypsy moth populations.

All of this information has prompted the MDA and the Minnesota Gypsy Moth Program Advisory Committee to develop proposed treatments for 2019.

Chisholm

The MDA is proposing a management plan to eradicate a reproducing gypsy moth population in the city of Chisholm. The proposed treatment area is 135 acres and is located east of Longyear Lake in the eastern portion of the Chisholm.
