Rosy Moth scripted presentation
A scripted presentation that aims to introduce one to the rosy moth—an Asian gypsy moth not known to be in the United States that poses a serious risk to US urban and forest ecosystems should it be introduced. Asian gypsy moths are frequently intercepted at US ports of entry so USDA continues to survey for this species and other Asian moths. We ask that members of the Sentinel Plant Network keep their eyes out for it as well and send any suspect samples to their state’s NPDN lab for diagnosis.
**This pest is not known to be in North America and is intended for public garden and other green industry professionals working on the front lines.
