Gypsy Moth in the Greater Toronto Area

Gypsy Moth egg masses in OntarioGypsy Moth in the Greater Toronto Area

Gypsy Moths are proving to be a massive problem in Southern Ontario in 2021.  LawnSavers Can help control this very damaging defoliating pest proactively with our Tree Spray Program and our Deep Root Fertilization treatment to help damaged trees recover with strength and vigour.

For Gypsy Moth Caterpillar stage control only, you will typically require 1-2 sprays to control the caterpillars after they hatch.

Tree Owners can help by scraping off egg masses from tree trunks and branches before the eggs hatch.  Be sure to dunk them in a pail of soapy or water, or burn them in a fireplace.
Note: as of May 3 2021 Caterpillars are beginning to hatch in more southern locales of Southern Ontario!

Jennifer Llewellyn, The Ontario provincial tree specialist provides great information here about the impending Year of the Gypsy Moth.

You can also learn more from the Provincial website here.

Pricing for Gypsy Moth depend on the height, volume and number of trees that require spray protection.

Treatment Applications begin at $129 per treatment.

    • A bumper crop of crabgrass that germinated in the perfect (rainless) storm.
    • Chinch Bug numbers were record breaking and persisted through the dry heat they love, secretly killing lawns while dormant! We can help with Chinch bug damage
