APHIS Provides an Update on Spotted Lanternfly Activities

August 13, 2019

The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) provided this update of spotted lanternfly ((Lycorma delicatula, SLF) locations in Pennsylvania, Virginia, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland. This invasive pest feeds on more than 70 types of plants including crops such as grapes, apples, hops, walnuts, and other hardwood trees, and sucks sap from stems and leaves, causing damage to plants as they feed. APHIS and state cooperators continue to work together to assess the affected areas in the states, and to implement a cooperative response program that detects, contains, and suppresses SLF populations.  See the attached report for details. 2019 Spotted Lanternfly Update.pdf
