Report of Spotted Lanternfly

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...

Cold Weather Plan

Delaware County Council reminds residents of the County’s Cold Weather Plan, which is put in place each year to assist the elderly, vulnerable and homeless during extreme weather conditions. These resources are offered through various agencies and networks including our Delaware County Division of Adult and Family Services, the Office of Services for the Aging (COSA), the Department of Intercommunity Health and Community Action Agency of Delaware County. These programs help residents year ‘round, but when the weather turns bad and possibly dangerous, these agencies expand their efforts. Our Division of Adult and Family Services provides a winter shelter directory that is distributed to police, municipalities and other officials. They also connect residents with the Community Action Agency of Delaware County and low-income energy assistance programs such as LIHEAP, and PECO’s energy assistance programs. COSA extends outreach to senior citizens, including having case managers check on seniors who may be vulnerable. They also have a weatherline for residents to call for tips and resources. The County Department of Intercommunity Health provides information to connect residents to temporary housing and assistance with food and utilities. And also a reminder to register for our DelcoAlert system, which alerts residents when there is a weather emergency such as power outages or road closures. The full Cold Weather Plan can be found...
