Browntail Moth update August 3, 2018

Browntail moth caterpillar

Last week, officials from several communities including Falmouth met to discuss the growing browntail moth infestation and a possible regional approach to combating it. Over the next few months, the towns will be working together to consider what options might be available, realistic, and effective for our communities.

Officials are also planning to host regional public forums this fall to inform members of the public of their progress and receive feedback. More information on these forums will be posted as soon as they are scheduled.
