Health Editor’s Note: This four-winged, multicolored, polka-dotted Spotted Lanternfly, first spotted in Pennsylvania in 2014, is on destructive insect. It has now infected five other states, New Jersey, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland. The spotted lanternfly is especially destructive to grape vines, hops, trees, stone fruit, apples and other crops. this insect is a good hitchhiker so it is only a matter of time till it spreads to other states. I hope they can be stopped…Carol
