At the invitation of the Borough, the Schuylkill County Conservation District will present an informational forum on the Spotted Lanternfly. The forum will be held at the Good Will Fire Co. on Tuesday, April 23rd at 6:30 pm. Kyle Schutt, Insect Management Technician, Schuylkill Conservation District will conduct a Power Point presentation and take questions.
Native to parts of Asia, Spotted Lanternfly was identified for the first time in the United States in Berks County in 2014. Since then, the pest has spread to a multicounty area in southeastern Pennsylvania, and sightings have been reported in some neighboring states. They feed on over 70+ plants, including important forestry and agricultural crops. To slow or stop the spread, the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture imposed a quarantine regulating the movement of plants, plant-based materials and outdoor household items out of the quarantine area. Schuylkill County has been designated as one of the quarantined counties.
The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture has mandated compliance. For businesses, agencies, and organizations, a Spotted Lanternfly permit is required for those working within the quarantine, who move vehicles, products or other conveyances within or out of the quarantine. The Schuylkill County Conservation District, USDA, and Pa Dept of Agriculture are actively treating locations where SLF has been reported. The County is focusing on public domains and USDA on private properties.
In the very near future, USDA and Schuylkill County Conservation District representatives will be out and about in the Borough identifying and treating problem areas. Additional information can be found at www.agriculture.pa.gov or
