Press Herald Cites UMaine Grad Student in Destructive Moth Article

The Portland Press Herald spoke with Kaitlyn O’Donnell, a graduate student in entomology at the University of Maine, for an article on destructive winter moths returning to Maine. O’Donnell, who has been working in Harpswell for the last 18 months, said research there has revealed the moths prefer apples and oaks, and they haven’t been spreading very far or fast. She added they have stripped oaks almost completely and their effect on apple trees could eventually concern commercial growers if the insects extend their range.
