Gypsy Moth Update from Extension Educator Tom Worthley: "On Friday, I observed these live adult female gypsy moths laying eggs along Chaffeeville Road in Mansfield. Obviously some caterpillars managed to survive the fungus and other predators and develop to maturity in some spots. If people are so inclined they could kill moths they can reach, (squirting the moths and egg masses with a bit of canola oil or very soapy water would work) but I'm inclined to think that a few adult gypsy moths are the exception rather than the rule."
