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.
