Announcement

Spotted Lanternfly update

The Spotted Lanternfly (SLF) is an invasive insect that was first discovered in Berks County, PA, in September 2014. It has the potential to destroy high value crops including grapes, tree fruits and lumber. In an effort to keep it from spreading, the PA Department of Agriculture has quarantined the Berks County townships of District, Earl, Hereford, Pike, Rockland, and Washington (including the boroughs of Bally and Bechtelsville). The quarantine means that any item that could hold Spotted Lanternfly egg masses may not be moved outside the quarantined area. That includes firewood, outdoor household items or any items stored outside during the fall, building materials, and plants or plant parts.

The PA Department of Agriculture and Penn State Extension are working with the affected townships. Currently sticky bands are being used to collect the early stages of the pest that can be found mostly on the Tree-of Heaven (Ailanthus altissima) trees. There are currently 9 teams working within and just outside of the quarantine area to determine if the pest has spread to other areas. 

THE HOTLINE AT 866-253-7189.
