The treatments are expected to occur during early morning hours and are not harmful to humans, pets, birds or fish, according to ODA.

Fifty-one Ohio counties are under gypsy moth quarantine regulations, as the invasive insect is known to defoliate more than 300 species of trees and shrubs, according to ODA.
