Abstract

An infestation of the gypsy moth, Lymantria dispar (L.), was discovered in San Jose in October 1976, only a year after positive identification of Dutch elm disease in California. In all respects, the gypsy moth is an even greater threat than Dutch elm disease to California's landscape trees.
