The Spotted Lanternfly is an invasive pest of grapes, hops, and apples, along with many other species of trees and plants. In late summer and into fall, spotted lanternflies are in their adult stage. They are approximately one inch, with black bodies and colorful red and grey wings with black markings. They lay eggs (small, grey masses covered by a waxy covering) beginning in October. If you see a spotted lanternfly, kill it, and report it to ODA by filling out the Ohio Plant Pest Reporter at www.hudson.oh.us/OhioPlantPestReporter.
