Utah State University will hold a Learn at Lunch webinar on Spotted Lanternflies & Other Invasive Tree Pests on July 16th at noon Mountain time or 2 pm EDT.
Spotted lanternfly is an invasive planthopper that is native to parts of Asia and was first detected in the U.S. in Pennsylvania in 2014. Spotted lanternflies feed on a wide range of host plants, including grapes, fruit trees, hops, and hardwood ornamental trees.
This presentation, by Dr. Lori Spears, the Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey Program Coordinator at Utah State, will cover the biology, identification, and possible control options for spotted lanternfly and other invasive landscape tree pests, such as emerald ash borer and Asian longhorned beetle.
The webinar is co-sponsored by Utah State University Integrated Pest Management Group.
