Penn State recently finished their four year study on the impact Spotted Lanternflies have on our environment.
These sap-feeding insects feed mainly on trees and insects but aren’t harmful to humans.
We spoke with officials at the Penn State Extension who say they can be dangerous to crops and plants.
“What vineyards are seeing when they have heavy populations of Lanterflies is that they can kill their vines and they were trying to figure out why and it turns out the starch storage is like the bank.”
