The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Sciences (VDACS) has established a quarantine for Frederick County and the city of Winchester. A Spotted Lanternfly Permit, issued by VDACS, is now required to move regulated materials out of the quarantine area. Other states with quarantines for spotted lanternfly may also request this permit for materials and goods brought from the quarantine area in Virginia.
This course is provided in a series of four self-paced modules. Each module contains a video presentation and a required quiz at the end to test your knowledge of the presented material. A score of at least 80% (answer 4 out of 5 questions correct) is required to successfully complete a module.
Module 1: Identifying the Spotted Lanternfly
Module 2: Recognizing Spotted Lanternfly Egg Masses
