Part of NAA's series on invasive insects and pathogens. A new invasive insect now impacts a wide range of landscapes in Pennsylvania. The spotted lanternfly is now well known for damaging grapes, fruit trees, and hops, but there are important implications for forests and natural areas as well. In this presentation, Sarah Wurzbacher will discuss host species, insect life cycle and behavior, control methods, quarantine implications on management activities, ongoing research, and more. As natural areas manager, you should know the potential impacts of this insect and work to educate others inside or outside of the quarantine, since collaborative efforts are the best strategy for containing and controlling this threat.
