The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry is proposing a full state quarantine for Gypsy Moth. This proposed rule amends a state quarantine against the gypsy moth to prevent its movement from all parts of the State. This quarantine is necessary to protect other state's forest and landscape tree resources. The Gypsy moth is also a federally regulated pest and USDA-APHIS-PPQ will mimic the full state quarantine.
