Invasive Species - The Spotted Lanternfly

The Spotted Lanternfly, an invasive pest that was first identified in Pennsylvania in 2014, has recently been discovered in South Coventry Township, Chester County. While there are no known impacts on public health, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, the discovery has promoted a mandatory quarantine of certain items within affected municipalities, due to the potential impacts on agricultural commodities such as grapes, apples, pine trees and stone fruits.
