Title

Berks County Conservation District announces assistance with Spotted Lanterfly.  See attachment.

Body

The Berks County Conservation District will be offering a Spotted Lanternfly Control Program to interested private property owners throughout the county. The overall objective is to reduce the number of Spotted Lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula) by treating and eliminating one of the invasive insects’ preferred host trees, the Tree of Heaven (Ailanthus altissima).  Several Tree of Heaven trees will be left and treated with systemic insecticides to provide control of Spotted Lanternfly.  Our program will concentrate on privately owned property in areas of Berks County with higher concentrations of Spotted Lanternfly and Tree of Heaven.

Expires

10/31/2019
