The invasive spotted lanternfly has been found in Pennsylvania and 8 other northeastern states since its discovery in 2014.

As of May 2020, there are 26 counties in Pennsylvania under quarantine for the lanternfly and most recently it has been discovered in Cameron County. SLF is native to China and was initially discovered in the United States in Berks County. Because of the difficulty in controlling SLF infestations, Pennsylvania is seeing economic losses of $50 million annually from the impacts to hardwood, ornamental plant, and grape industries.
