Controlling winter moths across New England

Entomologists at the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry’s Maine Forest Service (MFS) are gearing up for winter moth with two initiatives. On Nov. 29 they settled out parasitic flies (Cyzenis albicans) in South Portland as part of a biocontrol project to control the invasive winter moth (Operophtera brumata). The MFS is also encouraging the public to report a winter moth sighting through an online survey: http://www.maine.gov/dacf/wintermothsurvey.
