Invasive Pest Update
The Spotted Lanternfly, a New Insect Pest Detected in Pennsylvania
The spotted lanternfly is native to China, India, Japan, and Vietnam and has been detected for the first time in the United States in northeastern Berks County, Pennsylvania. The spotted lanternfly (SLF), Lycorma delicatula, (Hemiptera: Fulgoridae) was unintentionally introduced into Korea in 2006 where it is a pest. This approximately one inch long insect with piercing-sucking mouthparts has the potential to impact the green industry, grape growers, tree fruit growers, and the forest- and wood-products industries in Pennsylvania as well as the United States. Click here to read the full story.
Here's how to help STOP THE SPREAD of insect pests:
> Leave firewood at home–do not transport it to campgrounds or parks.
> Use only firewood from local sources. "Local" means from less than 50 miles. Firewood is commonly available at or near most campgrounds. It's a small price to pay to save the trees in your favorite campground.
> If you have moved firewood, burn ALL of it before leaving your campsite. Do not carry firewood from one campground to another.
