    On September 25, 2020, the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR) announced finding two dead specimens of the invasive spotted lanternfly(SLF) in the towns of Milford and Norwood, MA. MDAR notes they were brought in on materials that originated in Pennsylvania counties currently under a spotted lanternfly quarantine. MDAR was also recently notified that nursery stock with spotted lanternfly egg masses and adults may have been unintentionally imported and planted in several parts of Massachusetts.

    Because no live lanternflies have yet been found in Massachusetts, there is currently no evidence that SLF has become established in the Commonwealth. As a precaution, surveys are planned in the areas where the insects were found to confirm that no live populations are present. While a dead lanternfly was previously found in the Boston area in December of 2018, repeated surveys have found no further signs of SLF in that part of the state. For more information, visit MDAR's press release:

    “Tree traps are relatively easy to install, and they can be a good option for residential landscapes,” said Heather Leach, extension associate in entomology. “But it’s critical for homeowners to install them correctly and monitor them frequently.” And this from Penn State on same topic.

    This 10 minute video is a good basic primer on SLF, with IPM management tips at the end. From the videographer Andrew Conboy: Andrew is an amateur videographer who aims to spread awareness about environmental issues and increase public interest and literacy in the sciences.

    At the July Board of Directors meeting tonight it was decided to suspend the 2020 Mike Stacy Memorial Scholarship Golf tournament.  This decision was an extremely difficult one, but understandable given the current circumstances.  As this golf tournament is the only fundraiser for our scholarship fund, we are hoping to host a fundraiser later this year.  Details to follow.
