Montgomery County is now part of the newly revised county-wide spotted lanternfly quarantine. This affects your municipality even if spotted lanternfly hasn’t shown up yet. You play a key role in educating your residents on this topic. Please consider putting a news item about this in your local newsletter or on your municipal website. You may also want to discuss eradication strategies with your parks or public works staff. Some strategies, and their overall timing, are listed in the attached chart. Although this is a bug that we’re still learning more about, destroying egg masses and Ailanthus trees at this time of year is a proactive strategy to take. The spotted lanternfly has the potential to hugely impact not just our local agricultural economy, but the various goods that are shipped through (and out of) this area.
