Ledyard Gypsy Moth Update

LedyardThe Ledyard Gypsy Moth Committee for 2017 created to organize town wide aerial spraying had a late start and an uncooperative State DEEP (Department of Energy and Environmental Protection). As a result, one of your few options to protect your trees against Gypsy Moth infestation is ground spraying. The following is a list of ground sprayers compiled by the Ledyard Gypsy Moth Committee.

The fifth week of the month is typically a quiet week in Ledyard but there are some interesting events scheduled this week. The Charter Revision Commission will be holding their required Public Hearing immediately followed by their first meeting on March 29th.

There will an Informational Session about Ground Spraying for Gypsy Moths presented by  Bartlett Tree Experts at the Bill Library on March 28th at 6:30PM.  Due to a late start,  aerial spraying in Ledyard will not be possible this year but there are measures you can take to protect your trees. This session can help you decide about ground spraying.

I will be presenting an overview of what I heard on Facebook when I asked 3 questions in a survey of members of the Ledyard Community Forum . The answers were an interesting look at what members think about bringing and retaining business in Ledyard. This session will be held on March 30th at 6:00PM at the Bill Library for the Ledyard Business Network but everyone is welcome to attend.
