Spotted Lanternfly: Penn State Extension Program

Event Details

The Spotted Lanternfly (SLF) is an invasive, destructive insect that first arrived in Berks County in 2014. It has now spread into Montgomery, Chester, Bucks, and Lehigh Counties, and, while there have been some sightings in Delaware County over the past year, we expect that it will be invading the County in force over the next year.

The insect infests, feeds upon, and introduces disease to over 70 different species of trees and plants found in Pennsylvania. The potential for economic damage and residential property destruction is enormous. You can help limit the spread of and damage caused by this pest.

The program will be presented by Sam Barnett, Delaware County Master Gardener (Penn State Extension). Participants will learn about the insect’s history, how to identify it through its stages of development, and how to limit the spread of the insect and minimize its damage to your property, trees and community.
