Browntail moth infestations have spread up and down much of Maine’s coast, and increasingly to inland areas. Feeding caterpillars defoliate trees and shed toxic hairs that can cause severe irritation of the skin, eyes, and sometimes airways. This webinar will cover browntail moth life-cycle, ecology, history and spread, defoliation surveys, and management.

Join entomologists Angela Mech and Thomas Schmeelk as they discuss browntail moth life-cycle, ecology, history and spread, defoliation surveys and management.

Attending this webinar earns 2 recertification credits.

Sponsored by University of Maine Cooperative Extension and the Maine Board of Pesticides Control.
