What is the most effective spray for gypsy moths?

Just hatched. Starting to eat. Best long lasting control in Massachusetts


Using an insect spray such as Monterey Insect Spray containing Spinosad is the most effective way to treat for these types of caterpillars. When sprayed on the foliage, this products works by poisoning the caterpillars feeding on the leaves. It is more effective and generally lasts 3-4 weeks. Garden Insect Spray with Spinosad is a concentrate that can be applied with trigger, hand-held, or hose-end sprayers. This product is not a synthetic chemical, but a bacterial product produced by fermentation. It is fast acting and odorless.
