Speaker: Kenton Sumpter, Entomologist, Maryland Department of Agriculture

Kenton Sumpter is a detective on the trail of the invasive Spotted Lanternfly. He will share tales of how entomologists are discovering the routes and trying to halt the spread of this menace to some of our favorite Maryland native trees and most important agricultural crops. He also will offer tips on how you can support critical research to identify, track, and report this visually arresting but highly destructive insect.
