Gypsy Moth Survey


 Gypsy Moth Trap

The Texas Department of Agriculture is trapping for Gypsy Moths throughout Tyler as part of a survey. For next few months you may see a trap like the one pictured below in our park and around the area. The traps are unobtrusive and not harmful to humans or pets. We ask that if you come across one to leave it alone. It will be collected at the end of the survey. For more information, you can CLICK HERE to read the letter from the Texas Department of Agriculture.
