Gypsy moth was introduced to the U.S. from Europe in 1868 in an effort to breed a
better silk worm. Soon thereafter, some of the gypsy moths escaped from the lab as
a result of a series of accidents. Since no one yet realized the destructiveness
of this pest, no efforts were made to kill the escaped moths. They have been spreading
outward from Medford, MA, since then. Gypsy moth is now known through the entire
northeastern US, south into North Carolina and west into Wisconsin with occasional
outbreaks in other states. Arkansas has had occasional confirmed reports of gypsy
moth, most recently in the summer of 2012.
