Word of the Week - Oomycetes

Earlier this week, I was participating on a Virtual Zoom presentation for Master Gardener Volunteers in Lucas County. This year's interns were treated to a Plant Pathology presentation by OSU's Plant and Pest Diagnostic Clinic's Program Director, Joy Pierzynski, Ph.D. While there were a lot of words that Joy shared with this new group of OSU volunteers, I picked one that I just love to hear.

Spotted Lanternfly Quarantine Information

A quarantine is established to contain, or reduce the potential spread, of an identified pest. Recently, the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture (PDA) has expanded their spotted lanternfly (SLF) (Lycorma delicatula) quarantine to include 8 new counties. Those counties include: Cambria, Cameron, Franklin, Lackawanna, Montour, Pike, Wayne and Westmoreland. This brings up the total number of PA Counties under quarantine to 34. This is just over 1/2 of Pennsylvania's 67 counties.
