New research conducted on spotted lanternflies may provide helpful insights on preventing the population of invasive insects in Pennsylvania from growing even bigger.

Scientists from Penn State found that if certain insecticides are applied during the spotted lanternflies' egg hatching season, less of the bugs will survive. This could reduce the problematic number of spotted lanternflies in the state.
