This workshop was originally scheduled to be held on Ohio State University Campus. It's now changed to a webinar (available free of charge):

For anyone interested in participating, please click on the link below to view the webinar. We are aiming to cover Spotted Wing Drosophila and Brown Marmorated Stink Bug for 20 minutes apiece and Spotted Lanternfly for 10 minutes. We’ll take questions after each section and plan to be completed around 10am. 

If you do not have a good internet connection, please contact you Extension educator and see if you can view the webinar from their office. Let me know if you have any other questions, and thank you for your understanding.

Join members of the OSU Department of Entomology and the OSU IPM Program for a workshop that highlights recent research results and reviews the latest recommendations for key practices in monitoring, identifying, and managing the spotted-wing Drosophila and Brown Marmorated Stink Bug on fruit and vegetable crops. Although the spotted lanternfly has not yet been found in Ohio, this invasive pest has been detected in nearby states, so we’ll provide some tips to remain vigilant for this potentially new pest.
