Arborjet | Ecologel, a leader in plant health care and water conservation technology, urges residents and municipalities to treat for one of New England’s oldest and most persistent insect pests, the spongy moth, formerly known as Gypsy Moth. Originally introduced to the United States in the 1800s to help manufacture silk, it was accidently released into the wild and has since become established, causing extensive foliar damage to a diverse array of deciduous trees.
