Be on the Lookout: Spotted Lanternfly (Online)
The Spotted Lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula) is the latest non-native insect to arrive in Connecticut, and established populations have recently been found in Cheshire. Approximately half of the state’s forests are threatened according to the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station. Additionally, the Spotted Lanternfly is a serious threat to residential areas and agricultural interests, especially orchards, vineyards, and nurseries. Join CAES’ Associate Agricultural Scientist, Dr. Victoria Smith, for an informative Zoom presentation to learn what the insect looks like, where to find it, tips on management and how to report sightings. Time will be given for audience questions.
