ALERT: Spotted Lanternflies Sightings Increase
The first SLF that we know of was spotted August 12th, 2021 at Ferndale & Scenic, a block from Hillside Woods. Three were reported to the Conservation Commission that summer. One year later, we are getting handfuls of reports. Keep your eyes peeled: this emerging threat has devastated entire counties in Pennsylvania.
IF YOU SEE ONE, PLEASE REPORT IT:

This UPENN FAQ has helpful information.
Come spring, look for the wingless black and white or red, black and white nymphs.
If we all pitch in to suppress the looming SLF infestation, we may be able to avoid the worst of its impact. Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
