The state of Minnesota is planning to impose a quarantine to limit the spread of destructive gypsy moths. This will affect residents and travelers in Northeast Minnesota. North Shore Morning host Ann Possis spoke with Lucia Hunt, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture’s Gypsy Moth Program Supervisor.

Public hearings about the quarantine are being held Tuesday, Feb. 11 in Two Harbors, and Tuesday, Feb. 25 in Grand Marais as part of the County Commissioner board meetings.

More information about gypsy moths and the proposed quarantine are available from the Minneosta Department of Agriculture.
