    gypsy moth (Fig. 6). It was introduced into the United States for biological control of gypsy moth many years ago and is now well established in most of the region infested by gypsy moth. Three generations of this wasp may occur in the summer and fall after egg masses are laid, and another generation may occur the following spring. The gipsy moth and the brown-tail moth.

    The gypsy moth was introduced into North America in from Europe: 9 and quickly became an invasive species. Étienne Léopold Trouvelot imported the moths, with the intent of interbreeding gypsy moths with silk worms to develop a silkworm industry.: 10 The moths were accidentally released from his residence in Medford, Massachusetts. E.L. Trouvelot, who was interested in breeding a better silkworm, first brought the gypsy moth from France to Massachusetts in Some moths escaped to his neighborhood and quickly became established. Since their introduction, gypsy moths have spread north, south, and west, eating their way from Maine to North Carolina and into central.

    Lymantria dispar (Linnaeus), the gypsy moth, is one of North America's most devastating forest e Leopold Trouvelot in accidentally introduced the gypsy moth, a native specie of Europe and Asia, into the USA. By the 20th century, the gypsy moth has spread over 20 states from its introductory state Massachusetts.   In field experiments in Massachusetts, Boettner et al.

The brown-tail moth (Euproctis chrysorrhoea) is a moth of the family is native to Europe, neighboring countries in Asia, and the north coast of Africa.

Descriptions of outbreaks, i.e., large population increases of several years duration, have been reported as far back as the s. The life cycle of the moth is atypical, in that it spends approximately nine months (August to April.

Zenillia libatrix, Panz., all stages of which are described, is a common and widely distributed European parasite of Porthetria dispar[Lymantria dispar], L., Nygmia phaeorrhoea[Euproctis chrysorrhoea], Don., Stilpnotia solicis, L., and other Lepi-doptera, a list of which is given from the literature and from rearings in Hungary.

It is usually of little importance in control. Fungal resting spores in soil and infected gypsy moth cadavers are collected and dispersed by hand to spread the fungus to new locations although natural spread has been fairly rapid (Reardon and Hajek ).

Parasites -- Using parasites against the gypsy moth has been one of the most massive programs in biological control history (Reardon ). See Winter Moth in Massachusetts: History and Biological Control for more information.

Life cycle: Moths (the adult stage of winter moth) emerge from pupae in the soil usually in mid-late November (usually before Thanksgiving) and may be active into January, whenever the air temperatures are mild (typically when above freezing).

Well, entire books have been written about gypsy moths such as Robert J. Spears excellent “The Great Gypsy Moth War: The History of the First Campaign in Massachusetts to Eradicate the Gypsy Moth, ”.

The gypsy moth was introduced into. The gypsy moth accidentally escaped the home of E. Leopold Trouvelot and was introduced into the US in Medford, Mass. in the late ’s. He had intentionally brought it to his home in Massachusetts, from France, to study the insect with an interest in silk production.

Since then, gypsy moth has spread throughout the Northeast and well beyond. Bygypsy moths were extending their range to western Massachusetts and by they had reached Exeter. Brown-tailed moths started arriving at roughly the same time.

The gypsy moth is found mainly in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritime provinces. These moths were accidentally introduced into Massachusetts in by a French naturalist trying to cross the European gypsy moth with North American silkworms.
