Spotted Lanternfly

The Spotted Lanternfly is an invasive plant hopper and was first discovered in the U.S. in Pennsylvania in Berks County in 2014 and has spread to other counties in PA, and in New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, New York, Connecticut and Ohio.

This insect has the potential to greatly impact agricultural crops and hardwood trees. The Spotted Lanternfly feeds on the plant sap of many different plants including grapevines, maples, black walnut, and other important plants in NJ. While it does not harm humans or animals, it can reduce the quality of life for people living in heavily infested areas.
