    If you have not seen this new invasive insect in your neighborhood yet, you probably will soon.  The spotted lanternfly has been spreading throughout Southeastern PA since 2014.  It has the potential for great local impact.

    In this program, Heather Leach (spotted lanternfly extension associate at Penn State) will talk about the impact of the spotted lanternfly on homeowners, the green industry, and grape growers.  She will provide an overview of how to prepare for its arrival and current efforts to control it. 

    This program is free and open to the public. Please register by contacting Manada Conservancy at or 717-566-4122.
