Aerial application of Gypsy Moth Mating Disruption at Fermilab (both DuPage and Kane Counties, 5079 acres, 1 application) - This project uses five Air Tractor aircraft that are designed and built for aerial application (N444AS, N445MS, N444AS, N144KS,N1025A) operated by Alâ¿¿s Aerial Spraying under Contract No. AG-56A1-C-11-0009. The mission is to aerially apply mating disruptants (a pesticide) to slow the spread of the gypsy moth. The aircraft have been contracted to apply Herconâ¿¿s Disrupt II. Applications are timed to occur just prior to the emergence and flight of the adult male gypsy moths. The cloud of pheromone released by the mating disruptants prevents the males from finding or mating with the females; thus suppressing or eliminating the population. Work should begin around June 24, 2013.
