On Nov. 3, 2022, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) received a report of spotted lanternfly from a Walworth County landowner. The observant landowner had found multiple dead and a single dying adult spotted lanternfly on nursery stock purchased from an Illinois nursery. This serves as a reminder to always inspect your stock upon arrival in the nursery trade and prior to planting in your yard.
