Experts are still asking the public to lookout for the spotted lanternfly and any egg masses

Experts have previously asked the public to keep an eye out for the spotted lanternfly, and they’re continuing to ask for the public’s diligence.

The insects have destroyed trees and crops important to the Finger Lakes Region including grapes, apples, and hops.

The harmful insects lay eggs on many surfaces outside.


Some surfaces can help spread them around the area like vehicles, firewood, outdoor furniture, and campers.

Eggs are in a mass and appear to be an inch long with a shiny, waxy coating in a brownish/gray color.

Anyone who spots egg masses is asked to report it to the DEC.
