The Spotted Lanternfly has reached Garden City, and we are asking residents to be on the lookout for this invasive pest.
Spotted lanternfly (SLF) is an invasive insect from Asia that primarily feeds on a wide variety of plants such as grapevine, hops, maple, walnut, fruit trees and others. This insect could impact New York's forests as well as the agricultural and tourism industries.
We are asking all residents to look for the Lantern Fly, and if seen, to please squish them.
PLEASE NOTE: As of August 7, the Department of Agriculture is no longer asking residents to report sightings of the Lantern Fly to them.
