Gypsy Moth Adult

Gypsy Moth: Male (bottom) Female (top)

This is the adult stage of the insect. The male gypsy moth is about 1 inch long and has brown wings with black, wavy markings. The antennae are large and shaped like a feather. The female is larger, about 1 inches long. Her wings are white with black markings. Her body is covered in brownish-yellow "fur" and her antennae are thin. She has wings, but can't fly! From late July to early August, the gypsy moth will mate and the female will lay eggs. The adults die after mating.
