Spotted Lantern Fly 

Lycorma delicatula, commonly known as the Spotted Lanternfly (SLF), is a new invasive insect that has spread throughout southeastern Pennsylvania since its discovery in Berks County in 2014. SLF presents a significant threat to Pennsylvania agriculture, including the grape, tree-fruit, hardwood and nursery industries, which collectively are worth nearly $18 billion to the state's economy.
The public can do a great deal to stop the spread of this invasive insect. Learn more during this learning session, including how to identify spotted lanternfly, its impacts to local industry and communities, the current quarantine area in Pennsylvania, and actions you can take to help stop the spread.
