There have been several reports of Spotted Lantern Fly found in Borough of Brookhaven. We are taken the appropriate actions in this matter. The PA Dept of Agriculture is accepting any sightings of spotted lantern fly (link provided below). They will investigate and determine the appropriate action needed to contain the Fly. Report Spotted Lanternfly Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm: 1-888-4BAD-FLY (1-888-422-3359) From PA Dept of Agriculture website “Penn State University and Extension, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and PA Department of Agriculture (PDA) have joined forces to control and contain the spread of SLF. Penn State University is leading the research efforts currently underway to answer the many questions we have about the insect’s biology, pesticide studies, and the ability of the insect to adapt to the environment in Pennsylvania. USDA and PDA are actively treating locations where SLF has been reported. USDA is treating on the outer edges where the populations are small and will begin to move inward towards the center of the quarantine. PDA is treating areas where the population numbers are high and is targeting high risk pathways which may contribute to moving the insect to other locations. As funding is available, both USDA and PDA will work on properties for treatment. PDA is also surveying all counties in the state outside the quarantine looking for SLF.” More information can be found Pa Dept of Agriculture Lantern...Read More
