Yes, spotted lanternfly is looming on the horizon and we are teaming up to bring you information in a series of webinars. Each webinar will focus on, and be tailored to, a specific commodity group:

In conjunction with the New York State IPM Program and the Department of Agriculture and Markets, the Northeastern IPM Center will host a collection of webinars, titled “Spotted Lanternfly Basics.”

All webinars will follow a similar format that covers spotted lanternfly biology, identification, and hosts, monitoring and management strategies, and a regulatory update. While the content may be relevant to audiences throughout the Northeast, management practices covered will be specific to New York. Participants will be encouraged to ask questions.

This attractive insect sucks the life out of plants, almost literally. And, it has a broad host range, preferring trees and other woody plants – grapes and apples are of concern, but we don’t know if blueberry might be at risk. Not to mention the infestations that could develop on the shade trees in your yard.

Known distribution of spotted lanternfly, as of December 2018.

New York State has external quarantines in place to try to prevent its spreading into the state from Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Learn more about this invasive species on the NYS IPM Program’s Spotted Lanternfly webpage. And don’t miss one of these opportunities to learn about this insect and get your questions answered.
