Look Out For This Fly Nest on Your Christmas Tree
Have you and your family gone back and forth when it comes to getting a real or fake tree this holiday season?
Well this may be a check for the fake tree column.
The Department of Environmental Conservation is warning tree shoppers of a Spotted Lantern Fly eggs on your trees.
The Spotted Lantern Fly is an invasive species that feed on trees and a variety of plants such as grapevine, hops, maple, walnut and fruit trees.
If you come across a Christmas tree with an SLF nest that looks like this one below that the DEC provided on Facebook, you should follow the steps to removing it properly:
The DEC says to:
If you find a tree with eggs on it, the eggs should be scraped off and put in a container with hand sanitizer and report it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Make sure you check your tree over before bringing it inside. You could come across SLF or maybe even a pray mantis nest!
