Gypsy moth caterpillars are extremely abundant this year from visible caterpillars, masses of caterpillars in trees, pupae in trees, defoliated trees, and even caterpillar droppings causing issues.

Gypsy moths undergo a complete metamorphosis and there are many life stages you can intervene at to help control the population in your home landscape.
