How to Identify a Spotted Lanternfly
The spotted lanternfly is about an inch long and half an inch wide. The forewings are gray with black spots. When flying, it exposes its red and black hind wings. The lanternfly has a black head, black legs, and a yellow abdomen with black bands.
The spotted lanternfly is a planthopper indigenous to parts of China. It has spread invasively to Japan, South Korea, and the United States. Its host plants include grapes, stone fruits, and Malus species, although its preferred host is Ailanthus altissima.
Spotted lanternfly feeds on a wide range of fruit, ornamental and woody trees, with tree-of-heaven being one of the preferred hosts.
