Gypsy Moths... No Thanks.

I don't know a lot about Gypsy Moths, but I do know that they are having a field day with the Chestnut Oak trees we've been hiking through. We heard that they were imported from Asia for silk production, and then accidentally let into the wild where they've been steadily spiraling out of control. Sometimes so much of the tree cover is gone it feels like we're walking back in the spring buds of north Georgia.

Gypsy Moth Devastation

Hiking through sections of moths can be a bit disheartening. Thousands of moths will be laying their eggs, flying in your face while the sun blazes down on your head.
