This insect has the potential to greatly impact the overall agricultural industry of the state especially the grape, hop, small fruit, vegetable, and horticultural industries.
The Spotted Lanternfly, Lycorma delicatula, is an invasive planthopper native to China, India, Vietnam, and Korea that has been found in 13 counties in Pennsylvania and may be spreading into New Jersey. This insect is an excellent hitchhiker, so movement to and from the current quarantine areas in Pennsylvania can provide an excellent opportunity for its spread to new locations.
