NY iMapInvasives will hold a webinar on how to identify and report spotted lanternfly and its preferred host, tree-of-heaven, at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14.

Spotted lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula) is an invasive pest that is expanding its range within New York State. Spotted lanternfly feeds on a variety of plants, including grapes, hops and fruit trees, as well as native trees such as pines, maples, poplars, sycamores, walnuts and willows.

This species’ favored host plant is the tree-of-heaven (Ailanthus altissima), another invasive species, which bears some resemblance to native trees such as sumacs and walnuts.

If you are concerned about the impact that this detrimental pest could have in New York and want to help stop its spread, this webinar will be a great first step towards in taking action.
