Since it was introduced into New England in 1869, the gypsy moth, Lymantria dispar L., has slowly spread through the oak-hickory forests to the south and west and continues to be the most serious forest insect problem in the East. Work on the moth was increased substantially in 1971 to cope with a region-wide outbreak in the Northeast, and in 1975 it was accelerated through the USDA Combined Forest Pest Research and Development Program. New technology from the program is being incorporated into an integrated system for managing this insect.
