EPA’s Center for Integrated Pest Management (IPM) hosts an ongoing series of webinars featuring experts from across the country relaying educational information and practical strategies for establishing and improving integrated pest management programs. Also featured are smart, sensible, and sustainable strategies for addressing specific pest issues.
This topic is a continuation of our IPM for Tree Pests webinar series and will review one of the newest invasive challenges to face trees in the U.S. - the spotted lanternfly. Join us to learn about the environmental and the economic devastation currently taking place throughout the mid-Atlantic states. Unfortunately, the lanternfly is on the move, expanding toward the northeast, Appalachia, and north-central states. This webinar will present the latest in prevention and control strategies used by arborists, including pesticides (biopesticides and conventional pesticides), cultural controls, and biological controls. Continuing education credits will be available through some tree/arborist and pest management associations.
