The City understands the growing concerns of its residents about the Spotted Lanternfly and that is why we are working with the Environmental Commission to set up educational sessions to provide as much information as we can so that you can look for infestations on your property and treat them if found.

As an alternative to chemical treatment, Traps do work, and can be placed facing away from view. It is recommended that they be placed on trees which the lanternfly prefers, such as red maples, walnuts, willows, or the tree of heaven, to name a few.
