Spotted Lanternfly: Be on the Lookout
June 7 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
The Spotted Lanternfly became established in parts of NYC in 2020 and has popped up in upstate locations over the last couple of years. This colorful invasive insect can become a nuisance in landscapes and is a threat to vineyards right here in the Finger Lakes. We can all do our part because early detections of this pest are critical in its management. In this session we’ll show images of this insect so it can be recognized in its different life stages which range from tan egg masses, to tiny crawling black nymphs to the adult with polka dotted outer wings and bright-orange underwings. By the end of the program, you will know it’s favorite host plants, how to easily report sightings and we’ll discuss management options.
