Over the last two weeks, Spotted Lanternflies have been reported in Westminster and New Windsor in early and late nymph stages. These invasive insects have the potential to heavily damage certain vegetation and crops.
Residents who see the insects are asked to kill them and report their location to the Maryland Department of Agriculture. Maryland Department of Agriculture also has detailed information, including how to identify the insect in multiple stages, on its website.
