                If you need to meet with a specific staff member or department, please call to make an appointment.  If you are meeting with a staff member in their office, you may be asked to wear a mask to protect the health and safety of all employees and visitors.

                Please maintain social distancing using the markings identified in the hallways.  Honor the occupancy limit on the elevator.

                Conference rooms are not available for public use until further notice.  Public meetings will be made available via electronic means whenever possible.

                Personal court appearances will continue to be limited to very rare and statutorily necessary hearings.  Hearings will continue to be held telephonically or by other alternative means.  If you have an upcoming hearing or need to inquire about the status of your case, please call the appropriate office by phone.

                We appreciate your cooperation and working together during this challenging time.

Gypsy Moth Program

Gypsy Moth Aerial Spraying Update

Gypsy moth hotline: (800) 642-MOTH (6684)

What: Aerial spraying of mating disruptor to treat for gypsy moth.

When: Wednesday, July 8, 2020 weather permitting.

Spraying can start as early as sunrise and continue until the day’s plan is complete and as weather conditions allow. Aerial spraying requires calm winds, high humidity, and no precipitation. The yellow planes are loud and will fly low, just above the tree canopy. Pets or livestock may be frightened by the noise of the low-flying planes, so keep them indoors or monitor them.

Where: Select sites in Buffalo, Dunn and Chippewa counties. You can view a progress chart and maps of treatment sites at

Why: Treating for gypsy moth is necessary to control the spread of this destructive and invasive pest that feeds on the leaves of oaks, maples, crabapple, birch, and many other species of trees and shrubs.

Product: Planes will apply an organic, biodegradable mating disruptor product. The product is dispersed across the forest canopy as small waxy droplets which slowly release the synthetic gypsy moth mating pheromone.

Female gypsy moths do not fly, but give off a pheromone, or chemical scent, which attracts male gypsy moths. The product applied to the tree canopy emits the same scent. These treatments are highly effective at reducing the mating success of this insect. Past research shows this can reduce gypsy moth populations by over 90% in the subsequent year.

The composition of the chemical signal released is specific to gypsy moth and will not interfere with the lifecycle of other insects. It is also not toxic to people, bees, animals, birds, and plants.
