The Spotted Lanternfly is currently under quarantine in Virginia. If you are located within the quarantine (map below), VDACS, USDA and Virginia Tech no longer need reports from these areas. If you see a spotted lanternfly outside of this quarantined area, please report your findings to your local Virginia Cooperative Extension Office and VDACS at email@example.com.
To slow the spread of the spotted lanternfly, the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services established a quarantine for Albemarle, Augusta, Carroll, Clarke, Frederick, Page, Prince William, Rockbridge, Rockingham, Shenandoah, Warren and Wythe Counties, and the Cities of Buena Vista, Charlottesville, Harrisonburg, Lexington, Lynchburg, Manassas, Manassas Park, Staunton, Waynesboro and Winchester.
Businesses in the quarantined area are required to obtain a permit from VDACS and inspect all regulated articles leaving the quarantined area to ensure that the articles do not contain any life stage of the spotted lanternfly. Regulated articles are items considered to be a risk for the movement of spotted lanternfly to un-infested areas and include, but are not limited to:
The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services will honor other state Spotted Lanternfly permits. To obtain your Spotted Lanternfly permit through Virginia, you must submit proof that the Spotted Lanternfly Permit Training, or equivalent training, was completed along with the Spotted Lanternfly Permit Application.
