The Forestry Commission placed 950 of these Gypsy Moth traps across Chatham County, in an effort to keep the destructive insect from doing damage to hardwood trees, specifically Oak trees.

Inside is a pheromone strip that attracts male moths, according to forestry officials.

You are asked to leave them alone until teams from the Forestry Commission examine them.
