ST. PAUL, MN (KDAL) - As the Minnesota Department of Agriculture continues to try and slow the spread of the destructive gypsy moth in the state, a quarantine has been proposed for Lake and Cook Counties. Two public hearings will be held on the proposal and comments will be taken for thirty days beginning on January 27th.  The hearings are scheduled during County Board meetings on February 11 at 2 p-m in the Lake County Courthouse in Two Harbors and February 25th at 10 a-m in the Grand Marais Cook County Courthouse.  The quarantine follows a record number of moths found in northeastern Minnesota in 2013.
