State reports fewer trapped gypsy moths

first_imgAfter setting 34,000 traps around the state this summer to catch the much-loathed European and Asian gypsy moths, the Washington State Department of Agriculture has reportedly caught 25 of the voracious bugs, down from the 42 caught in 2015.One European gypsy moth of the 25 trapped this summer was found in Hockinson. None of the moths found were caught in areas that were sprayed for gypsy moths earlier this year. Statewide, no Asian gypsy moths were found, after last year’s record catch of 10.“It’s a big relief, no Asian moths were caught,” said Karla Salp, community outreach and environmental education specialist with WSDA.However, department officials said two to three years of trapping after a spray treatment are required before WSDA determines the success of a treatment.“While it is too early to declare the spring treatments a success, this year’s trapping results are very encouraging,” Jim Marra, WSDA’s Pest Program Manager and leader of the gypsy moth program, said in a news release.Vancouver had a high concentration of the traps this summer because one Asian gypsy moth — the more problematic of the two — was found at the Port of Vancouver in 2015.last_img read more
