The Spotted Lanternfly is the most recent invasive bug species from overseas to show up in here in the U.S. by way of international commerce.

 

The best has been seen throughout  Pennsylvania, and horticultural experts say the Spotted Lanternfly is of particular concern here because they feast on grapevines, apple trees, stone fruit trees, and pine trees.

 

Here's hoping they don't make their way south!

 

Anyone who finds Spotted Lanternflies in any stage of development is being instructed to destroy them, take a photo of them if possible, and then contact the State Department of Agriculture at (717) 787-4737.
