Butler County Added to PA Spotted Lanternfly Quarantine Zone

On Friday, February 24, 2023, the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture added Butler County to the spotted lanternfly quarantine zone.

A Spotted Lanternfly (SLF) permit is required for all businesses, agencies and organizations, agricultural and non-agricultural, working within the quarantine, which move regulated articles, such as products, vehicles and other conveyances, within or from the quarantine. A permit is also required to move regulated articles into any part of PA from areas with established SLF populations. https://extension.psu.edu/how-you-can-comply-with-the-spotted-lanternfly-quarantine-regulations
