All hands on deck to squash spotted lanternfly eggs in New Jersey

All of New Jersey is now quarantined for the spotted lanternfly, which means almost anything that has been stored outside cannot be moved without taking precautions to prevent the spread of the invasive insect that has plagued the state in recent years.

For most businesses, it means that special licenses are needed before certain items can be transported. Homeowners must be extra cautious when taking items stored outside to another location, such as a summer home or campsite.

According to officials with the departments of agriculture and environmental protection, the insect, which is destructive to agricultural crops as well as ornamental trees and shrubs, is not active at this time of year, but its eggs will be hatching as the weather warms in late March and April.
