Read the article in Newsday about Lanternflies. Never heard of them before but just this past weekend I did see some while walking the trail in Gardner Park in Bay Shore. Has anyone else seen them before?

Keep importing cheap crap from Asia, and you get this. I found a 5 yr old in the box of luggage I just bought.

Wikipedia says they feed on grape plants, hope these bugs don’t make it out east to the grape fields and fruit tree fields.
