Adult Gypsy Moths have begun to emerge, which means it’s time to install pheromone traps.

Pheromone traps contain pheromone lures that attract male moths as well as soapy water that helps to capture them. Male moths will fly into the traps and get stuck, so it’s important to check the traps frequently and clean out the moths.
