Homeowners ask county to spray for gypsy moths

Members of the Linthicum-Shipley Improvement Association authorized spending $1,220 on a county program to treat gypsy moths.

County officials will spray 61 acres of Linthicum Heights with Bacillus thuringiensis during the first week of May.

The state Department of Agriculture had found gypsy moth egg masses in the northwest area of Linthicum Heights, behind homes on Woodland Road, Maple Road and Kingwood Road, and recommended treating the area.

The 27 association members at Wednesday's meeting voted unanimously to spend $20 an acre to treat an area that includes those streets as well as Groveland and part of Shipley.

Several homeowners said they had spent the past two years fighting gypsy moths, with little success.
