About this Event
In this Finger Lakes Native Plant Society lecture, Dr. Hajek will cover the general biology and ecology of Lymantria dispar worldwide and specifically in the Finger Lakes. She will talk about the natural enemies that kill the larvae and eggs. In particular, she will describe the fungal and viral pathogens of L. dispar and will describe the results from her 21-year-long sampling of gypsy moth larvae in Yellow Barn State Forest. She will end with talking about how and why the latest outbreak is thought to have occurred as well as her own predictions regarding L. dispar populations in 2022.
