A bug that is a localized menace in Pennsylvania and New Jersey The spotted lanternfly.
this adult wandered into my area, not realizing as an State Certified exterminator I knew the game, and won twice!

Thanks.

I went up north to NJ to visit family, this "flying bug" actually is a great jumper> I was relaxing at the table in the back yard and this landed in front of me, I grabbed the KP and shot. Then I asked and googled and found out its a nasty foreign invader

It is a very well done capture. What do they do to the trees? Do they lay eggs in the bark and cause the bark to breakdown and thereby exposing the bare tree making it susceptible to invaders and
various diseases? Thanks a million for sharing such a wonderful wildlife image.

Grapes and Hardwoods, they are sap suckers, then the honeydew attracts and feeds other insects.
