Spotted Lanternfly is an invasive sap-feeding planthopper and was first discovered in the United States in Berks County in September, 2014. Upon confirmation of the presence of this pest, the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture began working with faculty in Penn State's Department of Entomology, Penn State Extension, USDA, and other scientific experts across the US and in Asia, to understand the threat posed by this insect, in order to prevent its spread and potential impact to Pennsylvania's agricultural economy and natural resources.
