The Village is currently undergoing an infestation of the gypsy moth caterpillar.
Some Village residents have reported gypsy moth caterpillars in their trees or in Village trees in front of their home. The caterpillars can be identified by their distinctly bristly body with five pair of blue warts and six pair of red warts running down their back.
If you see any areas affected by gypsy moths, please contact the Department of Public Works by email or by calling (262) 375-5325.
