Abstract

Gypchek is a gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar L.) - specific biopesticide whose primary use is for treating areas where environmental concerns outweigh the use of broad-spectrum pesticides for gypsy moth management. Gypchek is a lyophilized powder produced from larvae that have been infected with the gypsy moth nucleopolyhedrovirus (LdMNPV). The product contains a mixture of closely related LdMNPV genotypes that, in combination, act as the active ingredient.
