Grant Fine Arts Center to host Saturday event
Responding to a drought driven springtime scourge and likely way too much acquired awareness about frass, the Newaygo County Board of Commissioners will host a little get together at the Grant Fine Arts Center on the topic that was on everyone's lips (and trees) this past spring.
We’re talking Lymantria dispar.
Aka gypsy moths.
Yes, the ravenous little worms that humbled the mighty oaks, devouring their leaves with the rapidity of hungry teenage boys at an all you can eat buffet, will be the hot topic on Saturday October 9th beginning at 10am.
Residents are encouraged to attend.
NC Board Chair Bryan Kolk:
“Parts of Newaygo County got unexpectedly hit very hard by the Gypsy Moth invasion. We want to host a single location where some experts on Gypsy Moths can be available to tell us what we can expect next year and suggest some actions we can take to alleviate the problem.
“The experts will also be available for individual questions and advice.
In the meantime you may want to check out an article N3 posted in June from the DNR and MDARD that includes some tips for managing those esurient invaders who dared put a damper on our annual early summer bliss.
Hint: Dawn seems to work the best.
