Spotted lanternfly quarantine zone expands to all 21 counties of New Jersey

New Jersey officials are now asking residents and businesses in all of the state’s 21 counties to help stop the spread of those the spotted lanternfly. The state Department of Agriculture has added eight more counties to its spotted lanternfly quarantine zone. This means that all 21 counties are now included in the alert.

“One of the primary purposes of the quarantine is to bring attention to residents and business owners to check all materials and vehicles for the spotted lanternfly or its egg masses before moving goods or traveling,” the department said in a statement issued Wednesday morning.

While the NJDA and USDA have crews finding and scrapping egg masses, this quarantine serves as an alert to remind everyone to check for spotted lanternfly egg masses throughout the winter months.

New Jersey is believed to be the second state in the nation to impose a statewide lanternfly quarantine, after Delaware.
