Gypsy moth spraying weighed; meeting on Feb 15

The Journal Sentinel reports today that state and local officials are planning to spray some trees in four counties -- one of them being Racine -- this spring, in hopes of stopping the gypsy moth infestation.

A meeting on Racine County's spraying is scheduled for Feb. 15, at 5 p.m., at the County's Ives Grove office, 14200 Washington Ave., Sturtevant.

So far, the only area listed for spraying is 42 acres from Graceland Cemetery east to Blaine Avenue. See map below, from the Department of Natural Resources website.
