PITTSBURGH — You’ll see them no matter where you are in Pittsburgh. The invasive Spotted Lanternfly is everywhere in the Steel City, and it’s been the talk of the town for the visiting Milwaukee Brewers ballclub.
“It’s been quite a topic for everyone in the Brewers clubhouse,” radio play-by-play broadcaster Lane Grindle said during the broadcast Tuesday night. “There are everywhere in this city. You walk and hear crunches because they are all over the sidewalks. The hotel has shop-vac vacuuming the sidewalks.”
“The EPA is telling us to stomp them,” Levering said.
The Milwaukee Brewers finish their three-game visit to Pittsburgh on Wednesday morning. Hopefully they don’t bring any Spotted Latnernflies back with them when they return to Milwaukee following a three-game series versus the New York Yankees in the Bronx.
