Penn State University Extension will be offering a free webinar on November 16, 2022 at 10:00 am titled Spotted Lanternfly and the Potential Impacts on the Maple Syrup Industry.
Who is this for?
- Maple Syrup Producers
- Maple Researchers
What will you learn?
- Life Cycle of the Spotted Lanternfly
- Impacts on Maple and Other Tree Species
- Potential Impacts on the Maple Industry
Extension Educator, Brian Walsh, will discuss what is known about the spotted lanternfly (SLF) and observations about maple trees that provide insight as to the impact the insect could have on the industry.
Ever since SLF was found in Southeast Pennsylvania, it has been causing damage to agricultural plants, as well as non-agricultural plants. As the insect continues to expand its range, more is being learned about the insect's lifecycle and its feeding habitats. Since SLF can feed very heavily upon certain tree species, the insect can potentially impact the maple syrup industry.
