Berks County Gypsy Moth Application

BERKS COUNTY GYPSY MOTH APPLICATIONS

NOW AVAILABLE!

 

Accepting Applications:     Berks County Conservation District (BCCD) is now accepting applications from residents and community associations who would like to be considered for gypsy moth spraying. This is a state program, run by the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) with cooperation from Berks County. Any person who would like to be evaluated for possible inclusion in this program must submit an application to:

BERKS COUNTY GYPSY MOTH PROGRAM
1238 County Welfare Road, Ste. 200
Leesport, PA   19533

 

 

Note: State and Federal funding for the 2018 gypsy moth program has not yet been announced. Berks County’s program is contingent on receiving this funding for the program. 

The Gypsy Moth Program guidelines require a 23-acre minimum spray block size. We strongly encourage residents to speak with neighbors to ensure you meet the spray block size.

Individual applications must be submitted with a $20.00 non-refundable application fee. Community applications must be submitted with a $75.00 non-refundable application fee.

APPLICATION DEADLINE IS SEPTEMBER 1, 2017 

Applications are available on the web at www.berkscd.com, or they can be picked up at the Conservation District office at the above address.

Please note that submitting an application and fee only allows your property to be evaluated for the program. It does not guarantee that the property will be included in the program. Properties will be evaluated in the fall of 2017 and landowners will then be billed for a portion of the costs of spraying. Costs have not yet been determined. Costs will be based on the total acres included in the spray program AND the level of State and Federal funds allocated for the 2018 program. The estimated cost share rate for 2018 is $50/acre.
