Abstract:The gipsy moth, Porthetria dispar Linn., has been found in small numbers near or on most of the eastern border of New York State, thus necessitating close scouting and clean up work in nearly all of the proposed barrier zone some 25 miles wide and extending from Long Island Sound north to the Canadian border. Available data indicate a relatively slow spread in the Connecticut valley and even more favorable conditions for control work along much of the border in New York State. There was somewhat rapid spread on the eastern slope of the Berkshires and this may also be expected if the pest is allowed to establish itself in the Catskill and Adirondack mountains. Liberal Federal aid is considered essential to the maintenance of a barrier zone.
