Aerial Spraying for European Gypsy Moth to Occur in June


Village of Romeoville Press Release
Aerial Spraying for
European Gypsy Moth
to Occur in June
During June, the Romeoville area will receive an aerial application by the Illinois Department of Agriculture to eliminate the European Gypsy Moth (EGM). Weather permitting, the applications may occur any day of the week, and the overall treatment should only be a 1 to 2 day event.

EGM is an invasive species from Europe and is one of the most damaging forest and tree pests in the United States. The EGM has become permanently established in Illinois. This treatment is part of a statewide program to prevent EGM from establishing itself outside the northeast corner of Illinois. The treatment is also an attempt to reduce the impact of its invasion into other states.

For questions and concerns, the DeKalb office of the Illinois Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Environmental Programs can be contacted at 815-787-5476.
