The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is asking people to watch for an invasive species of moth that’s eating trees.
The DNR says spongy moths lay their eggs in masses and eat the leaves off trees. People with certain species of tree should be especially watchful, including oak, birch, crabapple, aspen, willow, and linden. The DNR says if you have a tree with a spongy moth egg mass you should contact a profession for removal.
