Had the past 18 months not been greatly impacted by the SARS-C0V-2 pandemic, 2021 may well best be known as the “year of the gypsy moth”. The spring and early summer months especially brought varied amounts of impact by these critters on our properties around the lake and across eastern Ontario.
The BLPOA conducted a survey of members on various aspects of this experience, from early awareness to preparations to the amount of defoliation observed and many others. The responses are summarized in a very informative manner and can be accessed here. Thanks to all who participated!
