The Spotted Lanternfly is an exotic insect pest native to China, India, and Vietnam where it has become a major pest. It was discovered in Berks County in 2014. The insect attacks many hosts including grapes, apples, stone fruits and tree of heaven. It has the potential to greatly impact the grape, fruit tree, and logging industries.

This invasive pest could also cost Pennsylvania $25-billion in crop losses, not to mention diminishing the quality of life, property values, interstate commerce, tourism, and global shipping operations. Several counties in Pennsylvania are currently under quarantine: Berks, Bucks, Carbon, Chester, Delaware, Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh, Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, Philadelphia, and Schuylkill.

Watch Dana Rhodes of the PA Dept. of Agriculture explain how you can identify and protect your business from this invasive threat.  Watch the webinar and learn what steps to take to prevent the spread of this destructive and disruptive pest.
