THE SPOTTED LANTERNFLY
CITIZEN SCIENCE BANDING PROJECT
In effort to reduce the spread of Spotted Lanternfly, LCCD is providing banding materials to residents in Lehigh County who are facing SLF nymph insect infestations on their trees. Neighborhood communities are making banding efforts most effective by joining together and banding as many infested trees as possible in a given community.

Are you wondering what you can do now and how can to prepare for the upcoming spring hatch of the Spotted Lanternfly? The successful control for this invasive species needs to be a community effort and therefore LCCD is offering hour-long Spotted Lanternfly Information Programs to local organizations within Lehigh County. In addition to learning about the natural history of the spotted lanternfly and background behind its arrival here in Pennsylvania, attendees will learn:
- To identify the non-native invasive spotted lanternfly during each of the four life stages
- To identify the non-native invasive host plant where it completes its life cycle
- About the various methods to control for the insect and its invasive host tree
- About their quarantine within our county and how to avoid the spread of the pest and its eggs
