LANSING – Gypsy moth numbers are up in several areas of Michigan this spring. The Department of Natural Resources says the defoliation right now is heavy, but damage is likely to start being noticed in the next few weeks. DNR officials say the invasive insects rarely kill trees in the state and are mainly a nuisance in residential areas. They were first found in Michigan in 1954.
