Question: 1419-1417
I heard you recommend tape for stopping gypsy moths on your radio show. How far up the trunk should I put it? Pat, North Stonington, CT

Mort's Answer:
Tape placed a couple of feet from the ground with a good coat of vaseline will keep all the creepy crawlies from getting up into the leaves. It has been reported that the gypsies are coming. They are too large for most birds. Hopefully, cities and towns will help by spraying.
