Episode 9: Be aware the distinctive but destructive spotted lanternfly with Olivia Reynolds
The spotted lanternfly is remarkable in colour and markings but is a very damaging exotic pest which has the capability of causing massive damage to not only our agriculture and horticulture industries, but it is also a problem pest for the general population as well. Olivia Reynolds from Cesar Australia describes what makes the spotted lanternfly so distinctive, and so destructive, and why it is important to ensure this pest doesn’t become established in Australia.
