Have you heard about the Spotted Lanternfly? The Spotted Lanternfly is an invasive plant-hopper native to China that could cause billions of dollars in loss to North Carolina agriculture, tourism, and trade. It is not in North Carolina and the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services continually traps and scouts for it. Youth can play a role by being aware of this invasive pest and if they see one, report it to NCDA&CS.
