The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture has reported a new pest in the United States.

The Spotted Lanternfly, a plant hopper from Asia, has the potential to harm various crops and forests.

I don't know if orchids are a potential host, but thought the information should be passed along.

One can read more about it on the Penn. Dept. of Ag. website.

'popcorn' ^^

btw it's superb (kill kill kiiiiiiiiiiillll!)

I wonder when the Conchaspis angraeci (yes you read right) will show up, it's a common pest on Vanilla plantations all over the world, and as the name suggest, it likes more palatable orchids sometimes…
