(Indianapolis, IN) - The Indiana Department of Natural Resources is trying to get to the bottom of the gypsy moth problem.
The DNR is hosting a series of virtual meetings via Zoom to address the gypsy moth infestation that is affecting La Porte County and several others. DNR personnel will discuss problems associated with infestations of the insect, available management methods, and proposed treatment options. The representatives will also welcome questions and take comments.
The meetings will take place on the following dates:
