The State has firm date sfor the final Gypsy Moth treatment for Superior and Douglas County:  Tuesday, July 23rd and Wednesday, July 24th.

State officials have battled the Gypsy Moth this summer with a series of aerial sprays in targeted areas.  The City of Superior and Douglas County have fallen into that spray area.  The sprays are almost done for the season, but will make one more pass over the northland.

Weather permitting, officials with the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture plan to treat the remaining areas in Douglas County the week of July 22nd.

Here are the specific details:

  • Spraying can start as early as 6 a.m. and will continue throughout the day until the day’s spray plan is complete and as weather conditions allow. Spraying requires calm winds, high humidity and no precipitation.
  • The single-engine planes will fly low, above the tree tops. It will be loud. The planes will apply mating disruption or pheromone flakes.

Additionally:

  • Spraying can start as early as sunrise and will continue until the day’s spray plan is complete and as weather conditions allow. Spraying requires calm winds, high humidity and no precipitation.
  • The planes will fly low, just above the tree tops. It will be loud.

We’ll continue to monitor the releases from the state and pass along the details as we have them.
