Confused. Male moths sprayed, lowering population


Gypsy moth males are going to be a bit more confused after the dousing The Ohio Department of Agriculture is planning on giving them. A few low-flying planes are planning routes 100-200 feet above the tree line in Franklin and Delaware county for an aerial strike against the moths in the form of chemical agent, Disrupt II. The chemical does not kill the moths (or have any effect on people, birds or plant life), but works solely to confuse the male moths trying to mate. The species is considered a pest and feasts on a variety of different plants and shrubs.
