There is an infestation of leopard moth in southeastern Pennsylvania, most noticably on oaks, that are apparently causing significant loss of twigs, and sometimes resulting in decline and twig and branch dieback. I have not been able to find any recommended control measures. Does anyone have suggestions or sources on controling this problem? Anyone with experience with it?

Russ, I've just had some e-mail correspondence with Brian Smith concerning what has been identified as Leopard Moth damage on a number of Tilia which came out of a nursery in PA or MD 3-4 years ago.

It was identified by the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station. I don't know if there was any discussion of control or management. Are you out there Brian?

Cornell "U" has no control measures listed in their "recomends publication" Dr. Greg Hoover of Penn. State(bug guy) is the person I would go to for recommendations, if any exist. I am checking on it from my end because, as Scott said in the earlier thread, we are seeing alot of new trees from the MD\PA area with it. :-(
Tilia mostly however recently it has been found, or shall I say noticed, on new oaks too.
(The Damage Is similar to that of the dreaded Asian Longhorned Beetle)
(I'm starting to see a trend here, nudge nudge, wink wink :-( . It would almost appear that someone "unloaded" inferior plant stock in the Northeast. If I do find or hear of a control measure I will be sure to forward it to you.

Brian, I found a good description of the pset, with some photo links at
http://www.jouy.inra.fr/HYPPZ/RAVAGEUR/6zeupyr.htm

Still no control measures or recommendations.
