A tracing technique involving a stable nitrogen isotope gives scientists a new window into the life cycle of the invasive spotted lanternfly.
Invasive spotted lanternfly threatens numerous crops and trees in North America. A new paper may help pest managers control it.
A new study published today in the Journal of Economic Entomology models potential suitable habitat for the invasive spotted lanternfly and shows large swaths of the United States and beyond are likely to be vulnerable should the spotted lanternfly continue to spread.
The invasive spotted lanternfly often lays its eggs on tree limbs and trunks. A new study finds that putting infested wood through a wood chipper effectively destroys spotted lanternfly egg masses, and researchers recommend the practice for reducing the potential spread of the pest.
