Malagari hosting spotted lanternfly virtual town hall on Monday
LANSDALE, July 30 – State Rep. Steve Malagari, D-Montgomery, invites community members to tune in to his virtual town hall at 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 3, addressing the spotted lanternfly.
Malagari will be joined by a representative from Penn State Extension to educate attendees about this invasive species and what everyone can do to mitigate their negative environmental impact. Those interested in participating must RSVP on Malagari’s website.
“It’s peak season for spotted lanternflies in Montgomery County, and I know that many residents’ plants, yards, homes or just quality of life have been impacted by these invasive pests,” Malagari said. “These bugs are not only annoying, they also have a serious impact on Pennsylvania’s environment and our very successful agriculture industry. If you’re interested in learning more about this and actions that you can take to rid this pest from our commonwealth, I encourage you to tune in on Monday.”
Questions may be directed to Malagari’s office by calling (267) 768-3671 or by emailing RepMalagari@pahouse.net.
