There has been so much talk about the new pest in town; the Spotted Lantern Fly. Clover Hill Vineyards & Winery is focusing our efforts on ways to fight this bug and protect our vineyards. This pest is not only a threat to vineyards, but also can harm fruit trees, hardwood and nursery industries.
The Lantern Fly was first spotted in Berks County in 2014, but Clover Hill experienced our first sighting in August of 2017. Unfortunately, this spring and early summer, we are experiencing a large number of nymphs in 3 of our 6 vineyards.
What can you do to help? The Department of Agriculture and Penn State recommend to kill the Lantern Fly when you see them. You can also become familiar with the egg masses and collect and destroy them by double bagging them for the trash, burn or submerge the eggs in alcohol or hand sanitizer.
On June 26th, 2018, we teamed up with the Reading Fightin Phils and Anewalt's Landscape Contracting for an awareness night at First Energy Stadium in Reading, PA to fight the Spotted Lantern Fly. Not only did we have a blast at the game, we experienced an outpour of community support in battling this pest and we were able to raise awareness on the Lantern Fly.
Thank you to all who attended the baseball game and also thank you to our community for helping us battle the Spotted Lantern Fly!
