Browntail Moth

$20

with Bob Emmons

Calendar Mar 6, 2019 at 6 pm
The browntail moth is a serious problem in parts of southern and central Maine and is currently extending its range. The moth poses two threats: its larval form, a caterpillar, is damaging to a number of tree species; and the toxic hairs covering the caterpillar cause a rash when people come into contact with them. Contact is most common when the hairs are shed from the caterpillar and become airborne. They can remain toxic for up to three years. The rash and discomfort they cause is often described as being worse than poison ivy. The instructor will discuss the identification, life cycle, and habits of the browntail moth as well as both Nn-chemical and chemical control methods. Bob Emmons was Professor of Plant Science at the State University of New York, Cobleskill, for 31 years. His major teaching areas were entomology, plant pathology, and integrated pest management. He is author of a college textbook on grasses for which he is paid a disappointing amount of money in royalties each year. He has written for Horticulture magazine and The New York Times garden section.
