Don’t let the pretty wings fool you! This is a Spotted Lanternfly, originally from China, and it poses great threats to our trees and fruit crops. Learn all about it in our monthly webinar recording!

In this edition, entomologist Kenton Sumpter of the Maryland Department of Agriculture shares details of how scientists are tracking and trying to slow the spread of this invasive insect and what you should do if you find it on your trees or agricultural crops.
