Everett Griner talks about the Spotted Lanternfly. A new insect everyone should fear in today’s Agri View.
Well, we have enough bugs and insects for farmers to deal with already. But, believe me, there will be more.
Right now the public is being alerted to be aware of the Spotted Lantern Fly. It not only is a threat to corn and soybeans. It is also destructive to grapevines and small fruit trees.
That is where the public comes in. Backyard grapevines and a single peach, pear, plum, or citrus, tree can be found in a lot of backyards. That makes this creature a threat to a lot of people besides farmers.
It is a small bug that resembles a moth. Its wings contain five different colors. That should help you identify it if it shows up on your property.
If you see it, you have a problem. Get help, from anywhere you can
That’s Agri View for today. I’m Everett Griner…
