TBD (To Be Determined) - Genetic testing must be done to determine whether a gypsy moth is European or Asian. We test moths locally and send them to a national lab for confirmation of results. Once results are confirmed, the type of moth caught will be listed on this website.

 

* In 2016, WSDA conducted gypsy moth treatments in the Vancouver port area. However, this year's catch was outside the 2016 treatment zone.
