LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — There is one downside to the upcoming summer season…the insects. But a group in Lackawanna County is trying to do something about the problem.
The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources has announced the start of Gypsy Moth Spraying.
A helicopter will spray nearly 1,500 acres of woods in the county. The spraying is being done by the Bureau of Forestry. They say for the first time in years they will not spray state, federal or municipal lands because populations are down across the state.
