  • Mohican Farm 7207 NY-80 Cooperstown, NY USA (map)

Spotted Lanternfly is a newly-introduced invasive insect that could have considerable harmful effects on New York’s agriculture and forests. With populations confirmed in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, it is essential to stay on the lookout for this insect and its preferred host tree, the invasive tree-of-heaven.

Join CRISP Field Projects Manager Dan Snider to learn all about Spotted Lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula), the tree-of-heaven (Ailanthus altissima), and how you can help prevent the spread of this invasive pest into our region. We will discuss region of origin, identification, risks of spread, and the free mobile reporting app iMap Invasives.
