Plant Pest Control

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office has received numerous calls in reference to a low flying yellow aircraft. This plane is working with the Ohio Department of Agriculture, Plant Pest Control Section and the USDA- Forest Service, Slow the Spread Program. They are conducting aerial treatment in our area for the control of the invasive Gypsy Moth.

The mating disruption treatments will begin during the middle of June, moving from Southern Ohio to Northern Ohio.
