can the eggs of gypsy moth be on surfaces other than trees such as metal or a car
im confused how you would set up the plots in an urban area, such as a public park, where the trees are spread out from one another. how would you do the plots and the protocol in this situation
would this be appropriate for assessing tent caterpillar eggs or something similar?
even if we find 0 do you still want the report?
where will this webinar post? Can the link be emailed to the participants? I can see this building into a course and being relevant to several courses for students to make the broader connections: insect ecology-forest ecology-Wildlife ecology-conservation biology
Are there any native moths that produce similar egg masses? Is there any concern about misidentification between egg masses produced by other insects?
The recording will be at this URL: http://fingerlakesinvasives.org/invasive-species-webinar-series-2/
Danielle- let us know how we can help build this survey into a course- great idea!
If egg mass surveys suggest high tree mortality for the coming year, will the DEC consider subsidizing aerial spraying?
are gypsy moth traps useful to get information on numbers in an area, or are egg mass surveys better
even if we find 0 should we still report it to you
thanks, very informative
