Her website is meant to serve as a guide on how to effectively identify and manage Spotted Lanternfly infestations. The township office is also providing numerous resources such as educational brochures and egg mass scrape cards, so stop by to learn more and have a chat with Gabrielle!

As required per the Chester County Quarantine order, residents should check quarantined objects before moving them either back inside or within and outside of the quarantine zones, click here to download and print the SLF Compliance Checklist.
