Gypsy caterpillar / moth populations are on the rise in the Dufferin area this year. Gypsy moths are not new to the area and outbreaks in the population occur around every 7 to 10 years. The outbreak is being monitored on public lands. Mature, healthy forests can withstand these cyclic outbreaks.

Landowners who have noticed a growing population or who are looking for information can learn more from the resources listed, including general information, identification, and management strategies:
