    When the gypsy moths were big in DC some 20 plus years ago, I had 9 oaks in my Tk Pk yard. So I taped with sticky tape to catch the little buggers climbing up (yes you could hear them eating leaves at night and hear their feces dropping there were so many). The I pulled the large ones off and dropped them in a bucket of soapy water. There was a lot of killing. I began to fear that God was a gypsy moth and I was not getting into heaven. And no friend could promise me that I was wrong.
