An update on Spotted Lanternfly is this coming Monday (October 19th) at 1pm.  We strongly encourage any local government officials and employees that are out along the railways and roadways in Jefferson, Harrison and Belmont to attend, as well as pesticide applicators and specialty crop growers who are interested.  Spotted lanternfly has devasted many nurseries, wineries, and orchards in PA and is moving this way.  We want to control it in Eastern Ohio, where we think it will appear soon based on its spread over the past 6 years.  However, we also want to be mindful of your time, so the program should run about 45 minutes with time afterwards for questions.

Watch the program recording below.
