    The Gypsy Moth, Lymantria dispar (L.) The gypsy moth (GM) is an invasive nonnative insect with larvae that feed voraciously on the foliage of many North American plants. GM caterpillars prefer oaks and aspens, but do not eat conifer needles unless they are starving. Preferred hosts are concentrated in the Northeast, Midwest, and southern. Adult European gypsy moths are not seen as often as the caterpillar stages (larvae), which at times can appear in seemingly endless numbers. The female moth is a dirty white color and has dark bands across the forewings. It is stoutly built and covered with dense, furry hairs. Although it has a wingspan of about 2 inches it flies feebly. The gypsy moth is attacked by predators, parasites, and, most importantly, diseases. These mortality agents are monitored by FPM workers. However, if these natural controls have not suppressed the populations, very high infestations may need to be treated with insecticide to protect trees in areas where dieback or mortality can't be tolerated.
