USDA to Spray for Spongy Moth in Logan County

Several Logan County Residents recently received a postcard from The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) saying that they will be aerial spraying treatment to stop the spread of the spongy moth – an invasive species that destroys trees and shrubs.
The treatment is NOT harmful to humans, animals, bees, or plants.
The spongy moth, formerly known as the gypsy moth, feeds on leaves, weakening trees and shrubs and potentially killing them.
The ODA will host a virtual open house for residents to learn more on either February 13th at noon or February 15th at 6 p.m.
Spraying is happening in parts of Auglaize, Fairfield, Hardin, Hocking, Knox, Logan, Licking, Vinton, and Washington Counties.
