Destructive Insect: Spotted Lanternfly

Lanternfly Spotted in Lordship

Christine Griffin, Chair of the Lordship Improvement Association’s (LIA) Environmental Committee

“The Spotted Lanternfly – a highly invasive insect, killing any plant it devours, was found in Lordship. If you find any, kill them by stepping or squishing. If traveling by car, please check your windshield, especially the wiper area, as this is one way the insect travels from state to state.”
