According to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, the Spotted Lanternfly, Lycoma declicatula (White), is an invasive plant hopping insect that is native to China, India, Vietnam, and later introduced to Korea where it has become a major pest. It was first discovered in Berks County, Pennsylvania in 2014 and later found in the central Pennsylvania region.  This insect attacks many hosts including grapes, apples, stone fruits, and tree of heaven and has the potential to greatly impact the grape, fruit tree and logging industries. Early detection is vital for the protection of Pennsylvania properties, businesses, and agriculture.
