MADISON CO. N.Y. — What is all the fuss about cicadas? Earlier this year we heard warnings about the 17-year brood and saw crazy pictures of shed exoskeletons all over social media. Did any of that happen here in CNY? What cicada broods are present here and when can we expect them next in our forests and yards? Come find out!
On August 10th at 6pm, Kristina Ferrare, Forestry Program Specialist at CCE Onondaga and Megan Henderson, Ag Subject Educator at CCE Madison will give an overview of Cicadas, Gypsy Moths & Spotted Lantern Flies, Oh My!
Gypsy Moth populations rise and fall in cycles. This year we certainly saw a rise and received a few phone calls at the office about this non-native pest from France. Megan Henderson, Ag Subject Educator for CCE Madison will be giving an overview of this insect and touch on management practices.
Spotted lanternfly (SLF) is an invasive pest from Asia that feeds on a wide variety of plants. This insect poses great risk to agricultural crops and forests – particularly apples, grapes, and maple syrup. We will give an update on this pest in NY, including where it has been found, how to identify it, what is being done to monitor for this destructive pest, and plans to control it.
