Where The Gypsy Moths Moved Through.

The Gypsy Moth was first discored in Pennsylvania, during the 30's and 40's they spread to Pike, Lackawanna, Wayne, Monroe, and Carbon countries. Pennsylvania countries were infested and the Gypsy Moths now moved on to Minnesota. The populations kept increasing till finally the Gypsy Moths reached North America

By gorging themselves into leaves, Gypsy Moths weaken, and can kill more than 300 diffrent species of trees. Gypsy Moths have destroyed more then 75 million acres in the United States thats why Gypsy Moths are more or a problem today then before in history.

Gypsy moths feed on a wide variety of leaves from diffrent trees.

Gypsy Moths spread from one place to another because the female Gypsy Moth lay there eggs on things such as bags of mulch, car tires, tree trunks, leaves and more. When the objects such as bags of mulch or cars leave somewhere or get sold the eggs go with them. Therefore, when the eggs hatch they end up where ever that car or bag or mulch went. Thats how the Gypsy Moths spread from one place to another.
