The invasive Spotted Lanternfly is already being seen around our area and they are a serious pest.
This insect has the potential to greatly impact agricultural crops such as grapes, hops, and hardwoods. It is also reducing the quality of life for people living in heavily infested areas. After seeing the increase in infestation last season, we need to be even more vigilant this year to help rid our area once and for all.
How You Can Help
The Spotted Lanternfly is easily moved if no one is looking. If you are in the quarantine area, please “Look Before You Leave.” Inspecting your vehicles, trailers, or any outdoor items before you move around or out of the quarantine is important.
