Spotted Lanternfly Informational Session Planned

Currently a quarantine is in place for 13 southeastern Pennsylvania counties to try to stop the movement of the Spotted Lanternfly.  This pest is a native of China, and could possibly work its way into our area.  The destructive insect feeds on a variety of plants including grapes, apples, peaches, ailanthus, willow, hops and certain ornamental plants.  To educate those possibly affected by the Spotted Lanternfly, the Snyder County Conservation District will be holding a mini-workshop on February 23 at the Shade Mt. Winery beginning at 9AM.  Speakers from Penn State Extension and the PA Department of Agriculture will each present a program and will be available to answer any questions. Pesticide Applicator, ISA Certified Arborist, and Society of American Foresters – CFE Credits are being offered The workshop will start at 9AM and is scheduled to end between 11:30 and noon 
The session is free, but please call or email to reserve seating since space may be limited.  Call 570-837-3000 ext. 114 to register or by email at [email protected].
