It has been noted that agriculture an forestry agencies in Nevada are concerned about the potential infestation of the small white moth that can destroy entire groves of aspen, cottonwood and willow trees, especially in mountainous areas. Over the past few years there has been a 100-fold increase in their numbers. It's not clear whether such things as drought, wildfires, climate change or any other number of factors have contributed to the infestation. The gypsy moth is a notorious hitchhiker. The female lays her eggs during the late summer months on just about anything - trees, outdoor furniture, automobiles, trailers, campers, etc. and can be transplanted just about anywhere.
