Stop the Invaders!



The spotted lanternfly, an invasive insect that first arrived on the scene in 2014 in Berks County, Pennsylvania. The planthopper, native to Asia, has the potential to take a big bite out of Pennsylvania's economy by damaging crops, landscapes and natural ecosystems, including the grape, tree-fruit, hardwood and nursery industries.

So far, the insect has been contained to a quarantine zone consisting of 13 counties — Berks, Bucks, Carbon, Chester, Delaware, Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh, Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, Philadelphia and Schuylkill — and those on the front lines of combating the pest want to keep it that way.
