SLF Spotters Business Sign-up Form

The Issue: Spotted Lanternfly (SLF) is an invasive insect that will have many negative impacts on New York’s agricultural, wine/beer, maple syrup, and tourism industries. 

In addition, spotted lanternfly can easily hitchhike and lay their eggs on vehicles, boats, trailers, and other recreational gear. Therefore, travelers can unknowingly spread the spotted lanternfly. 

How Businesses Can Help: Raising awareness of the spotted lanternfly is vital to stopping its spread.  SLF threatens over 70 different plants including valuable crops such as grapes, hops, apples, and syrup producing maple trees. Businesses that rely on these crops can play a vital role in outreach. 

Participation: Helping is easy, just fill out the form below. We will give you outreach materials to hand out to your customers and you can feel good that you’ve taken a simple step that will help to protect your livelihood and New York’s resources.
