RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The Nevada Division of Forestry needs help learning about the infestation of the White Satin Moth in northern Nevada.
The non-native moth can destroy aspen, cottonwoods, and willow trees. Right now, it can be found laying eggs on trunks, leaves, or branches of these trees. When the eggs hatch, the larvae will eat leaves, then move to the tree's bark. White Satin Moths are all white except for the body, which appears to have black bands. If you see a White Satin Moth, you are asked to email Gail Durham at GDurham@forestry.nv
