"The hop for his profit I thus do exalt,
It strengtheneth drink and it flavoureth malt;
And being well-brewed long kept it will last,
And drawing abide, if ye draw not too fast." Thomas Trusser, 1557’

Invasive spotted lanternfly are still not in the Great Lakes Region, but our friends on the East Coast are already dealing with them. Modeling has shown that Michigan can support populations based on our climate and host species and hops will likely be affected. Everyone can benefit from this video to help in identifying them and better understanding their biology.

USDA APHIS has put out an extensive risk assesment available here https://www.aphis.usda.gov/plant_health/ea/downloads/2018/mid-atlantic-region-slf-ea.pdf

MSU is monitoring this emerging risk and the most up-to-date info can be accessed at www.ipm.msu under the invasive species tab.
