The spotted lanternfly is an invasive insect that was first discovered in Berks County in Speptmber 2014. The insect has potential to destroy high-value crops, including grapes, tree fruits and hardwood lumber. In an effort to keep it from spreading, the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture has quarantined the Berks County Townships of District, Earl, Hereford, Pike, Rockland, Washington (including the boroughs of Bally and Bechtelsville), Colebrookdale and Longswamp (including the borough of Topton)

This meeting is open to the public and pre-registration is not required.
