Populations of the invasive gypsy moth can outbreak and defoliate large areas of oak forest in spring. A host-specific fungal pathogen attacking gypsy moth in North America since 1989 (Entomophaga maimaiga) can provide excellent control of populations of this forest defoliator, which can range from low to outbreak densities that cause complete defoliation in late spring. In recent years, naturally occurring control of gypsy moth populations due to this fungal pathogen has been failing in localized areas.
