Pest Alert – Spotted Lanternfly

The Spotted Lanternfly, Lycorma delicatula, an invasive planthopper, has been discovered in Berks County. 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 businesses and agriculture.
