Two Pennsylvania politicians will visit eastern Lebanon County next week to discuss the threat of the spotted lanternfly.

State Senator Mike Folmer (R-Senate District 48) and Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding will appear at the Myerstown Community Center Auditorium next Wednesday to discuss the spotted lanternfly.

The event, scheduled for 6pm on April 3, will be educational in nature and discuss the biology and life cycle of this insect, in addition to control methods.

With this year’s addition of Dauphin County to the quarantine zone, Lebanon County is no longer the western edge of the Spotted Lanternfly’s expansion into PA.

If you move vehicles or products within Lebanon County, you or a designated employee must complete an online training by May 1 in order to receive a Spotted Lanternfly Permit.
