What is a spotted lantern fly?
The spotted lantern fly is a planthopper native to parts of China, India, Vietnam and eastern Asia. An adult lantern fly is about an inch long, with black-spotted gray forewings and hind wings with patches of red and black, and a white band. In the fall, they lay egg masses on their host trees.
