Area Of West Duluth To Get Gypsy Moth Treatment

by

DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) will treat about 1200 acres of land in Duluth with aerial applications of BTK to combat the gypsy moth.  The treatments will be applied early Friday and again in another 5 to 10 days.  The MDA gypsy moth monitoring program detected an infestation in an area of West Duluth and low flying planes will be spraying in an area bordered by Roosevelt Street on the north, the St. Louis River on the east and south, and two blocks west of Highway 23 on the west.  BTK is a naturally occurring bacteria that is widely used in organic gardening and is not harmful to humans or pets.  A special hotline has been set up by MDA to offer updated details on treatment dates and times...888-545-MOTH
