Spotted Lanternfly

This is a spotted lantern fly that is an invasive species here. It showed up this summer in large numbers and has the fruit industry in a panic. It is a pretty insect but very destructive to fruit. check out this Youtube video to see how intense they can be. All I can say is thank goodness they don’t bite or sting.
