We invite you to join us for the NJPMA Spotted Lanternflies Online Workshop. This workshop will feature a mix of in-depth sessions featuring the latest research and technology in the pest management industry and how to combat Lanternflies.
SLF is a serious invasive pest with a healthy appetite for our plants and it can be a significant nuisance, affecting the quality of life and enjoyment of the outdoors. The spotted lanternfly uses its piercing-sucking mouthpart to feed on sap from over 70 different plant species. It has a strong preference for economically important plants including grapevines, maple trees, black walnut, birch, willow, and other trees. The feeding damage significantly stresses the plants which can lead to decreased health and potentially death.
The Spotted Lanternflies Workshop will cover the following topics…
- Identification of the Spotted Lanternfly
