Just a reminder to folks who take pride in their yard to be on the lookout for Lanternflies. Our VP Mike Fordunski lives near Principe (Maurice) Park and you can see the damage that was done to the shrub he had for more than 20 years.
This is your opportunity to bring up any concerns.
Officer Martinez will be hosting the Build the Block meeting this Saturday at 4:00 pm at the Rock Church which is located at 57-02 Hoffman Drive.
Hope to see you there!

We were told about several upcoming festivals and want folks, especially those in west Maspeth and the surrounding area, to know where the music is coming from. We don't want people calling 311 and wondering why the music doesn't stop. The NYPD will be monitoring them. However, if you hear the loud cars with speakers on the roof, call 311 as usual.
If you're a light sleeper, you might want to close your windows during the night events.

An Elmhurst resident spotted Lanternflies on her plants in Elmhurst. These flies are very destructive and have been seen in numerous locations in our area in prior years. The resident found the information below that she feels works the best for her.
Lanternfly bugs can be easily killed using a mixture of dish soap. Dawn dish soap is effective at controlling these bugs though any brand of dish soap works. Though it is not a completely natural method to get rid of lanternflies, it is much safer for children, pets and even adults. A lot of people prefer using Dawn dish soap to kill lanternflies as it kills them on contact'.
Attached are photos of the Lanternflies on her plants and we also attached more information about them.
The 104th Precinct would like to make you aware of what is most likely a scam. We have received information regarding a roofing scam. If a male rings your doorbell or knocks on your door stating that your roof is damaged and he can repair it, be aware it is a scam. Some of the things they will say are, "You have loose bricks" or "you may have water damage on the roof" "I do commercial roofing, but I can do your house". They will say they can repair it in a day and ask to be paid in cash. Do not agree to have any work done or allow them to go on your roof. Please share this information with your family, friends and neighbors.
