Spotted Lanternfly Permit Required

Spotted lanternfly (SLF) is an invasive inspect that threatens Pennsylvania, including the agricultural, ornamental, and timber industries. Help to stop the spread!

Businesses and organizations must have SLF permits if they move vehicles, products or other conveyances within or out of the quarantine zone which includes the counties of Berks, Bucks, Carbon, Chester, Delaware, Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh, Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, Philadelphia and Schuylkill. Businesses located in other states with established SLF populations must also have a SLF permit if traveling or transporting goods into Pennsylvania.

An owner, manager, supervisor, or other designated employee must complete an online permit course to demonstrate knowledge of this destructive pest and the quarantine requirements. To access this free course, go to extension.psu.edu/slf-permit.

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture began compliance verifications on May 1, 2019.

Questions? E-mail slfpermit@pa.gov.

Additional Information

The company should designate one or more supervisors/managers in charge of warehousing or trucking to take the permit training and exam, and request enough permits to cover all vehicles under his/her authority. That designated person should then train all workers in the product movement/transport stream and maintain a record of who has been trained. They should place a permit in each company vehicle, along with documentation to show that inspections are being done and control measures (such as vehicle washes) are done at appropriate times to keep spotted lanternfly from moving with the product or vehicle. Training and inspection/control records must be kept for two years.
