This webinar will introduce Lycorma delicatula (spotted lanternfly), a new invasive insect which was first found feeding on Ailanthus altissima (Tree of Heaven) in Berks County PA in 2014. This insect has potential to damage several important commodities including grapes, stone fruit and timber crops. The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture has enacted a quarantine order to try to reduce the spread of this insect. Included in this presentation will be the biology of spotted lanternfly, a summary of current management and eradication efforts, and a discussion of practices required by the quarantine order.
One Continuing Education Credit for Landscape Architects; Society of American Foresters (CFEs); and PLNA Certified Horticulturalist (PCH) will be offered to attendees.
