If you were awakened by the sound of roaring airplanes overhead, you may have been wondering what was going on.   Many people took to Facebook today to complain about the loud noise of planes flying just above their houses.  The airplanes are spraying for Gypsy Moths and it will continue throughout the mid day and resume again tomorrow morning.

The Wisconsin Gypsy Moth program is spraying pheromone flakes that is supposed to disrupt the Gypsy Moth mating.  They fly so early in the day because the winds are lower and the application is more effective.

You can find more information through their website.
