The Spotted Lantern Fly

Presented by Susan Boser

Native to parts of China and Vietnam, the Spotted Lantern Fly has unfortunately invaded the United States. Its preferred host is the Tree of Heaven but it infests crops including soybean, grapes and stone fruits. This invasive insect is also damaging our ornamental trees and shrubs. Our speaker, Susan Boser will educate us on this  invasive insect and offer insight into what we can do to deter it. Susan is a Penn State Extension Agent based in Beaver County, PA. She is a graduate of West Virginia University where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture with a major in Environmental Protection. Lecture and Power point presentation.
