During the last half of July 2020 
we killed hundreds and hundreds 
of Gypsy Moths 
and scraped thousands of egg masses 
off of trees. 
Even today we are finding more egg masses. 
I read that scraping them off the trees 
does not help 
but surly some will be killed if they are scraped off. 
Not looking forward to the larvae in the spring.
