Spotted Lanternfly


A potentially very serious pest of grapes, peaches, hops, and a variety of other crops, the spotted lanternfly (SLF), Lycorma delicatula, was detected in Frederick County, Virginia, on January 10, 2018.  It is important to look for it and report any finds.  Spotted lanternfly has also been reported on a range of ornamentals around the home and in the landscape.
