Invasives have no boundaries

Stop the spread

It seems over the past several years more and more invasives have started appearing in our region. It doesn’t matter if it is in the water (didymo and whirling disease), vegetation, or bugs that wreak havoc on trees and crops.

The Spotted Lanternfly

The Spotted Lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula) is native to China and was first detected in Pennsylvania in September 2014. Spotted lanternfly feeds on a wide range of fruit, ornamental and woody trees, with tree-of-heaven being one of the preferred hosts. Spotted lanternflies are invasive and can be spread long distances by people who move infested material or items containing egg masses. If allowed to spread in the United States, this pest could seriously impact the country’s grape, orchard, and logging industries. Learn more at USDA APHIS.
