If you notice low-flying aircraft on Monday, July 17 – don’t be alarmed.  According to officials with Douglas County, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection program will be aerial spraying to combat the spread of the Gypsy Moth on that date in our area.  The spray treatment is expected to start as early as 6:00 AM and continue throughout the day.

Douglas County is the last of the county to see aerial sprays this year.

The planes will be dropping a mist that comes down as small, waxy droplets that slowly release a mating pheromone.

Northlanders can expect to see loud, low-flying yellow single-engine planes.  It should be noted that weather conditions may affect the treatment and timeline.
