Dear Avenel Residents:

Below please find some important Community information. 
The ACA routinely meets with McFall and Berry to review potential current Integrated Pest Management (IPM) related issues that may impact the community. The ACA will periodically communicate certain topics or areas of concern that  may be of interest to residents.
Spotted Lanternfly an Invasive Species
 Link to article included      
A message from Danielle McFall, McFall and Berry Landscape Management...

Please review the article below from the Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA) concerning the Spotted Lanternfly. McFall and Berry has been reviewing this concern since they were first reported. Invasive species are always on our watch list. IPM is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices.

McFall and Berry uses current comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This includes all invasive species such as weeds, insects, and others. Currently, there has been no reported sightings in Maryland regarding the Spotted Lanternfly. However, in time we will see reports come in.

Please feel free to ask questions and if you do see some evidence, please contact McFall and Berry. 

 Summer Leaf Drop
After a stretch of dry, 90+ degree weather, you may see yellowing foliage and leaf drop on certain tree species, such as tulip tree and river birch. Although this situation can be quite noticeable, these symptoms usually have no long-term impact on tree health.
