BAD BUG NEWS ALERT!! This is not exactly the sort of update we are excited to relay. Spotted lanternfly was detected last week in Cuyahoga County. More details can be found at this link.
From a broader perspective, this is a great chance to remind producers that we will addressing the spotted lanternfly issue directly at the December 11th Ohio Maple Days event in Ashland. And not just talking about spotted lanternfly either – rather, the focus will be to equip Ohio’s maple producers to be trained early detectors of this nasty forest invasive insect pest that poses a very real threat to maples and other native Ohio trees.
