Have You Spotted A Lantern Fly? If So, Don't Panic

Now that we are into late summer, chances of seeing the invasive pest called the Spotted Lanternfly are best, as these leaf hoppers are in their adult stage. Spotted Lanternflies were first found in Pennsylvania in 2014, and although populations are expanding into New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and beyond, it’s a good idea to refrain from immediately rushing to spray pesticides which could be harmful to pollinators, pets and people. Here is more information about the SLF as well as non-chemical methods for control. (Photo of adult SLF: Michigan State University)
