As many of you are aware, the LDD moth is wrecking havoc in our area. Recently, the name has been changed to the ‘spongy moth’ because its former name contained a racial slur. This article provides a good overview.

If you are interested in learning more, you can look to the Winter 2021 edition of our Greenleaves newsletter (pages 13) for a great update from our own member Susan McGowan. This can be found in the Newsletter section of the website.
