Detection and reporting workshop for new invasive insect offered August 3

July 27, 2023

July 27, 2023

The Invasive Species Centre will present the spotted lanternfly detection and reporting workshop on Thursday, August 3 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Bloomfield Town Hall (289 Bloomfield Main Street).

The spotted lanternfly is an invasive pest spreading in neighbouring American states, with populations as close to Canada as Buffalo, New York. They are not currently established in Canada; however, if spotted lanternfly were to establish, it could cause immense damage to Ontario grapevines, tender fruit orchards, hops, parks, and forests.

  • This workshop will provide training on key information and tools to identify and report spotted lanternfly and its preferred plant host, tree-of-heaven, an invasive plant that is widespread throughout southern Ontario.
  • This is an in-person workshop and is free of cost.
  • Advance registration is required. Click here to register.
  • For more information, contact the County of Prince Edward at 613.476.2148 extension 1023, 613.962.9108 extension 1023, or info@pecounty.on.ca.


Please note: The County of Prince Edward provides this information as a service to the general public. While we do our best to provide accurate information, construction projects and associated service disruptions are subject to change based on weather, road, traffic, and other uncontrollable conditions.
