|When an area is quarantined, products that can carry spongy moth (Lymantria dispar) [formerly known as “gypsy moth”] must be inspected and found clean before they can be shipped to areas that are free of this pest. Products that must be inspected include:
If moving materials WITHIN Wisconsin, contact the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.
If moving products from quarantined counties within Wisconsin to unquarantined states or to other countries, contact the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.
The following brochures, available from the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, contain detailed information.
