Spotted Lanternfly Found in Ithaca, NY

A population of spotted lanternfly (SLF) has been found in Ithaca, New York, just off the Cornell University campus.

They were found on their favorite host plant, another invasive species, tree of heaven (Ailanthus altissima). However, SLF also feeds on many other trees and plants, which, unfortunately, includes grapevines. With New York State's important Finger Lakes grape-growing region and wine industries so close to Ithaca, state agencies and pest-control experts are particularly concerned about this pest's impact in the region.
