The invasive spotted lanternfly has been found in four southeastern counties in Pennsylvania. We are trying to eradicate this potential pest. There is a quarantine order in place that prohibits movement of any living life stage of this insect to areas outside of the quarantine area. To find information about identifying the spotted lanternfly and the most current information about the quarantine order and compliance go to Pennsylvania Department of Ag Spotted Lanternfly website.
