In an effort to direct you to the individual who can answer your questions quickly, The Department of Natural Resources Division of Forestry maintains this contact list. County and municipal suppression program coordinators are listed for the locations that have coordinators. Government clerks are listed for all counties that do not currently have a coordinator.

Ashland County
County Contact

Note: This county does not currently have a Gypsy Moth Coordinator.

Note: County officials initiate and coordinate the DNR Suppression Spray Program with assistance from the DNR. If your county is not currently participating in the Suppression Spray Program, you will want to contact a county government official, such as a county clerk, to report the gypsy moth problem in your neighborhood and to urge your county representatives to participate.

Note: Property owners who want their properties sprayed by the DNR Suppression Program should contact their city, village, or town clerk as well. Your local officials may not realize there is a gypsy moth problem in the community. And counties often will not become involved in the DNR Suppression Spray Program unless municipalities indicate their support and interest in treatment.

Note: If your county chooses not to participate in the voluntary DNR Suppression Spray Program, you have the option of privately organizing an aerial spray..

Municipal Contact
