Winter moth are now ACTIVE on the bog!

Winter moth have been found on the bog as of Saturday April 14. Counts of 4 average were reported from Onset and Middleboro. Averages of 10 were reported in Plymouth from sweeps done on Sunday. These populations were on the edges rather than the middle of the bog. Other sweeps in Middleboro and Plymouth confirm counts ranging from 0-10, concentrated on the edges of bogs. The larvae are very small!! but they are out there. Nearby blueberries were loaded with winter moth.
