Spotted Lanternflies - Online Workshop

Wednesday, September 14th, 2022  | 9am - 10am   

Online Check-In Begins at 8am!

We invite you to join us for the NJPMA Spotted Lanternflies Online Workshop.  This workshop will feature a mix of in-depth sessions featuring the latest research and technology in the pest management industry and how to combat Lanternflies.

SLF is a serious invasive pest with a healthy appetite for our plants and it can be a significant nuisance, affecting the quality of life and enjoyment of the outdoors. The spotted lanternfly uses its piercing-sucking mouthpart to feed on sap from over 70 different plant species. It has a strong preference for economically important plants including grapevines, maple trees, black walnut, birch, willow, and other trees. The feeding damage significantly stresses the plants which can lead to decreased health and potentially death.

The Spotted Lanternflies Workshop will cover the following topics…

  • Identification of the Spotted Lanternfly
  • How it found its roots into the Tri-State area.
  • The spread of the Spotted Lanternfly and its increasing areas of quarantine.
  • Ornamental damage created by the Spotted Lanternfly.
  • Treatment and Identification of Egg Masses.
  • Treatment of adult and other stages of the Spotted Lanternfly.
  • Best Management Practices per the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, and Penn State.
  • Host Plants of the Spotted Lanternfly.
  • The role of Tree of Heaven (Ailanthus altissima) in the Life Cycle of the Spotted Lanternfly.
  • Eradication of Tree of Heaven (Ailanthus altissima).
  • Chemical Controls of both Pests (Insects and Ornamentals)
  • Biological Controls of both Pests (Insects and Ornamentals)
  • Where do we go from here?

Our Featured Speaker will be:

  • Mike Reed - Director of Technical Sales and Education , Synatek Solutions
