Spotted Lanternfly and the Maple Syrup Industry Webinar to be Held on Nov. 16

A free webinar will be offered by Penn State on Nov. 16 (10 a.m.) discussing the spotted lanternfly and potential impacts on the maple syrup industry. Ever since the spotted lanternfly was found in southeastern Pennsylvania, it has been causing damage to agricultural plants as well as non-agricultural plants. As the insect continues to expand its range, more is being learned about the insect's lifecycle and its feeding habitats. Since the spotted lanternfly can feed very heavily upon certain tree species, the insect can potentially impact the maple syrup industry. Register at
