Trapping for Spotted Lanternfly on Kelleys Island and South Bass Island! Why? dehaas.2 Wed, 07/13/2022 - 08:28
Infestations of Spotted Lanternfly in Cuyahoga, Lorain, and Jefferson Counties have been Scouted and Treated for Spotted Lanternfly. This invasive insect has been hitchhiking on trains coming from Pennsylvania. So why trap on an island in the middle of Lake Erie? One word…..Campers.
While there is something to see year round in the world of Spotted Lanternfly or SLF, last week, a group of Extension professionals - Jim Jasinski with our IPM Program, Thomas deHaas in Erie County, Ann Chanon in Lorian County and Amy Stone in Lucas County spent sometime in the field together gathering footage and photographers for some educational resources that are seasonal specific. Once developed, these tools will help Ohioans, help us, look for SLF in the Buckeye State.
