BOB HARROFF PASSES A BROWN TAIL MOTH NEST to Brunwick Town Council members, from left, Sarah Brayman, and Vice Chairman Kathy Wilson. At the Tuesday night council meeting, Harroff presented facts and figures associated with the Brown Tail moth population and their effects on the region, and discussed ways to mitigate their impact on the community by cutting down nests, and placing them in soapy water. He also mentioned environmental conditions that would dwindle the population, including a rainy period in the spring which will cause a fungus to grow that will destroy the moths and their nests. Harroff has been compiling data and working with a Bowdoin arborist and state officials to inform the public on the issue.
