Abstract

Periodic intrusions of Asian strains of gypsy moth, Lymantria dispar L., into North America have occurred over the past several years. Preventative measures in the countries of origin and around ports of entry in North America have lowered the risk of invasion and establishment but the threat remains current. Asian strains have a wider host range than the established North American (European) strain and, unlike North American female moths, Asian females fly.
