We need your help! Individual Spotted Lantern Flies have recently been reported as close as Red Lion. As you have probably heard, these incredibly invasive insects can kill acres of grape vines in a single season. They love to feed in the early fall when delicious sugars and other nutrients are highly available in the phloem. This poses a serious threat to all vineyards, but small vineyards like ours are especially vulnerable. Later in the fall, their unpredictable, random egg laying ramps up their invasiveness because they are expert hitch hikers! They will lay their drab, easily camouflaged egg masses on just about ANYTHING. Please check out the links below to learn more about the SLF and what you can do to help CONTROL THE SPREAD. The videos are 1 or 2 yrs old, but have some great footage and basic information. You can report sightings online using the PA Department of Agriculture link at the bottom, or call 1-888-4BADFLY.
