Elk County Conservation District Manager Steve Putt reported an increase in the gypsy moth population during Monday night's regular meeting.
"The gypsy moth population is increasing again," Putt said. "If you follow the gypsy moths at all they really run in cycles so you will have a couple of years of high populations then the population will drop off and you will have a couple years of very little or no population then all of a sudden it will spike again and we are in that upward spike at this point."
