The spotted lanternfly, an invasive fly from Asia that kills trees and crops has been found in our vicinity in New Jersey.

If you see a spotted lanternfly, report it and, kill it!

If you find any life stage of spotted lanternfly, you should try to destroy it. This insect is a threat to many trees and crops and we need help from everyone to try to prevent it from spreading.

*New Jersey Spotted Lanternfly* (Dept. of Agriculture) is currently not monitoring their telephone hotline due to COVID 19 furloughs so please email: slanternfly@njaes.rutgers.edu, with details of your sighting and your contact information.”
