Permits required for traveling to the show this year from the following counties

  • The Spotted Lanternfly continues to spread. Zones of quarantine are indicated in various counties in Pennsylvania. See the Map for updates of counties in Pennsylvania under quarantine for the Spotted Lanternfly.

The Spotted Lanternfly is a big concern to our agriculture industry. We are asking all of you to help keep this invasive insect contained. The Spotted Lanternfly has expanded its range rapidly, primarily by hitchhiking on vehicles and cargo. The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture (PDA) and The Pennsylvania State University College of Agriculture Sciences are working to help educate the public to contain this invasive insect!

If your business moves products or supplies in and out of this quarantine zone, you are required to get a permit and maintain a vehicle log of each trip. This permit helps indicate that you are aware of the Spotted Lanternfly and are taking the necessary steps to help avoid spreading this invasive insect. Issued by the PA Department of Agriculture.
