Spotted Lanternfly Reminders
February has brought our area abundant snowfall, but Spring is a few short weeks away, and that means our least favorite regional pest will be back- spotted lanternflies.
While spotted lanternfly adults do not survive winter temperatures, the egg masses do. Egg masses can hold up to 30-50 eggs and can be found on tree trunks, branches, playsets, siding, and nearly any other flat surfaces. Now through May, is a great time to look for egg masses on your property and scrape them. For a video on how to scrape egg masses and more information on spotted lanternfly management, visit the Penn State Extension.
