Spotted Lanternfly! How do I Scout for it?

Published on

Three counties in Ohio have infestations of Spotted Lanternfly. They include Jefferson, Cuyahoga, and Lorain. Right now, they are in the egg mass stage. But as soon as April, they will hatch into 1st instar nymph.





Time to start scouting! How?

Recently, I conducted a training for workers at a local nursery. It made me think to produce a short video for nursery employees, landscapers, arborists, park workers, gardeners, and local communities.




I created 2 videos. One is in English; the other is in Spanish.

For those of you that want to provide a brief training on Spotted Lanternfly and Tree of Heaven, see the videos below.
