Wineries in the Grand River Valley are clustered almost as closely as a bunch of grapes. There are 31 wineries in the area, and they help bring tourists, other businesses, like hotels, and investments into the area.

adult spotted lanternfly with wings open

SALEM, Ohio — Live spotted lanternfly egg masses were recently found in Beaver County, near Conway Railyard, about 15 miles from the Ohio border. To date, the Beaver County sighting is the closest reported to Ohio. These signs have some Ohioans worried the Buckeye state might be the next on the pests’ list. Joe Boggs, of Ohio State University Extension, said it is likely to end up in Ohio sooner or later. “We have no reason ... to believe that it won’t make its way to Ohio,” he said.
