Aircraft assigned to aerial spraying

planes

Five high-wing Cessna 182s from Michigan called the Prairie du Chien Airport their home base for three days last week, June 26-28. They were in the area to perform aerial spraying for gypsy moths, before heading north to do the same. The fleet consisted of five spray planes, five patrol planes, two semis and a command center. Spraying of the gypsy moth is necessary to control the spread of the destructive and invasive pest that feeds on the leaves of oaks, maples, crabapples, birches and many other tree and shrub species. The Gypsy Moth Slow the Spread Program, run by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, conducts aerial spraying of gypsy moth populations annually, mainly in western Wisconsin. Its objective is to slow the spread and establishment of gypsy moth. Spray site maps are available to view online at gypsymoth.wi.gov. (Photo by Correne Martin)
