MONTROSE, Pa. — Join Penn State Extension Master Gardener Nancy Dooling on Thursday, October 3 at 6:00 pm at the Penn State Extension Office, 88 Chenango Street in Montrose, PA to learn about this invasive insect.
Spotted Lanternfly is the newest invasive insect from China, so destructive to orchards, vineyards and hardwoods that all southeastern Pennsylvania is now under quarantine. This foreign leafhopper has been spotted as far north as Wyoming County and it’s likely a matter of time before we see it locally.
At this free program you will learn how to identify the bug and how to kill it and the Tree of Heaven, also an invasive species from China which the bug needs to reproduce. We’ll also talk about the state quarantine and what that means to us. The one-hour class will offer a presentation on Spotted Lanternfly and plenty of time for questions and answers.
