Spotted Lantern Fly

The NY DEC is trying to reach every man, woman and child to keep an eye out for and destroy it when they see it. If left unchecked, it will wipe out our entire grape growing industry which is gaining more and more popularity on Long Island and generating tons of income for farmers allowing our farms to continue instead of developments.
