Seasonal work opportunity: Gypsy moth trapping
This is an excellent seasonal work opportunity for reliable people who like to work outside, just announced by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.
The European gypsy moth causes extensive damage when the caterpillars defoliate North American forests. Duties include assembling, setting, monitoring and removing up to 700 cardboard detection traps within a designated route. Trappers collect data using a hand-held global positioning system (GPS) unit (training provided) and report to a lead trapper. Trappers work from home and MUST live in the area in which they trap. A reliable vehicle is necessary for driving trap routes. Mileage is reimbursable.
