Spotted Lantern Fly Sniffing Dog Demonstration

Forsyth County Cooperative Extension hosted a Spotted Lantern Fly workshop in January. The fly, an invasive species located in Kernersville in June of 2022 poses a threat to vineyards, hops fields and general outdoor peace. The workshop detailed how the state responded to the infestation. Check the county extension website for more activities Forsyth County Center | North Carolina Cooperative Extension (ncsu.edu).
