  • Gardening: Reader worried about gypsy moth droppings

    Gardening: Reader worried about gypsy moth droppings
    Q: My inquiry concerns gypsy moth droppings. I live in a wooded area of Moore Township about 2 miles north of Bath and just off Route 512. Many of the trees on my property are oak. This year we apparently have gypsy moth caterpillars again. However, unlike past gypsy moth infestations, we are experiencing a severe amount of droppings from the caterpillars. This has been going on for the past week or two. We need to wash off our deck and furniture at least twice a day. Have there been any other such reports? Do you have any idea how long we can expect this to continue? Any help will be appreciated.
