Spotted Lanternfly Business Training

As many of you know, Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture requires all businesses working within the spotted lanternfly quarantine area which move products, vehicles, or other conveyances within or out of the spotted lanternfly quarantine area to obtain a spotted lanternfly permit. The quarantine zone includes all of Chester County among other counties. This permit can be obtained online. See https://extension.psu.edu/spotted-lanternfly-permit-training.

Classroom trainings are also being offered free of charge throughout the quarantine area, one of which is taking place on September 19, 2019 from 9-11AM at Chester County’s PennState Extension Office at the Government Services Center at 601 Westtown Road, West Chester, PA. Registration is required. To register, contact the PA Department of Agriculture at 717-787-5674 or SLFPermit@pa.gov .
