four invasive insects

The list of invasive insects in the United States is a long one, but one entomologist offers his list of the four “most wanted” (clockwise from top left):  the spotted lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula), the brown marmorated stink bug (Halyomorpha halys), spotted wing drosophila (Drosophila suzukii), and the khapra beetle (Trogoderma granarium).
