SPOTTED LANTERNFLY

As you may already know Red Hill and most of the areas in the Upper Perkiomen Valley are in the quarantined area for the spotted lanternfly. It has only been in the last ten days or so that several residents have notified us that they have found these insects on their trees.  Below you will find links to several articles concerning the insect.  Additional information can by found by going to The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture website
