The Spotted Lanternfly, Lycorma delicatula (White), an invasive planthopper, has been discovered in Eastern Pennsylvania. This insect, which is native to China, India, & Vietnam, feeds on a wide range of plants and trees. This non-native plant hopper attacks many hosts and has the potential to greatly impact the grape, fruit tree, and logging industries.
