Clarke, Frederick, and Warren counties and the city of Winchester are heavily infested with Spotted Lanternfly. VDACS, USDA and Virginia Tech no longer need reports from this area. If you find Spotted Lanternfly outside of these areas, please report the finding to your local Virginia Cooperative Extension Office.
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.
