(AP) — West Virginia officials are conducting aerial treatment of nearly 3,800 acres in Grant and Preston counties to slow the spread of gypsy moths.

The West Virginia Department of Agriculture says the spraying was scheduled to begin in mid-May.

The gypsy moth is a non-native caterpillar that has become established in most of the northeastern United States. It feeds on more than 500 species of trees and shrubs but prefers the leaves of oak trees, West Virginia's predominant forest tree.

Officials say wildlife experts have assured them that no rare, threatened or endangered species would be harmed by the treatments.
