Dance of the Gypsy Moths

video


The Gypsy Moths have emerged after the catepillars munched on leaves of many trees. Lots of trees in the area are bare branched. There were so many catepillars having a picnic, it sometimes sounded like it was raining. You could hear the little critters munching and crunching.

This week you couldn't walk outside without being swarmed by brown and tan months. The males are busy fluttering around looking for love in all the spaces. The females don't fly very well.

Hopefully, a wet Spring will kill the catepillars off so the trees won't be decimated.
