eLearning Course: Spotted Lanternfly in California
This course is designed to inform the public, master gardeners and other stakeholders on the threat posed by spotted lanternfly (SFL) to the state of California. SLF is a destructive invasive insect threatening agricultural and ornamental plants.
A key to slowing the spread of SLF is early detection and rapid response, which requires education of citizens and resource professionals. With the assistance of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, UC Academics, and Penn State Extension the UC Master Gardener Program “Spotted Lanternfly in California” is now available. The course provides an overview of spotted lanternfly ecology and empowers learners to detect and report spotted lanternfly.
