August 28, 2018 - The Spotted Lanternfly, Lycorma delicatula is a new pest
to the United States. This invasive planthopper, initially discovered in in
Berks County, Pennsylvania in 2014 is native to Southeast Asia and poses a
threat to forests, ornamental trees, orchards, vegetables, grapes, hops and
other agricultural commodities. Since its initial discovery in Pennsylvania
it has spread to infest portions of 13 counties of that state, recently it
has been discovered in New Jersey in Warren, Hunterdon and Mercer Counties.
The New Jersey Department of Agriculture has recently enacted a state
quarantine in these counties to restrict the movement of this insect to
un-infested areas of the state. All other life stages of this insect, from
nymphs to adults can fly, hop, or drop right into or onto vehicles – meaning
that vehicles and equipment can easily and quickly help it spread.
