Willing to Treat Browntail Moth, Hemlock Woolly Adelgid and/or Other Pests
Browntail moth is currently at outbreak levels in parts of Androscoggin, Cumberland, Kennebec, Lincoln & Sagadahoc counties with smaller infestations in other locations. Hemlock woolly adelgid is expanding in the Midcoast as well as in southern Maine. In a questionnaire administered by the Maine Forest Service licensees were asked whether they would control for browntail moth and other insects and diseases. The Maine Forest Service does not recommend these above any others. Other licensees wanting to be listed should contact the Maine Forest Service, Forest Health and Monitoring.
To check on current license status of those listed or for a complete list of licensed applicators in Maine, you can search the Maine Board of Pesticides Control database on their websites:
Note: if you think you have found hemlock woolly adelgid outside of extreme coastal York, Cumberland, Sagadahoc and Lincoln Counties, please let us know. This will help us direct our resources for management.
