Gypsy Moth Treatment in Lake Nokomis Area Tomorrow

Another treatment to reduce the gypsy moth population will take place as early as 5:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 28, 2020 in the Lake Nokomis area of Minneapolis (Highway 62 and Highway 77). This treatment involves low flying aircraft, similar to the flight that occurred early in the morning last Wednesday, May 20.

The treatment is part of a mitigation effort sponsored by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) to eradicate a reproducing gypsy moth population. A high number of moths were found in this area in 2019 as part of the state monitoring program.
