The development of a geographically robust gypsy moth life stage model (GLS-2d) may provide plant protection officers with a new tool to assist them in intercepting Asian gypsy moths “hitching a ride” on container ships from East Asia to the ports of North America. This new tool has the potential to help better defend our border against these highly destructive alien pests.
