Been seeing more and more of them the past week…from never seeing one in my life to seeing them every day. What is it that they do that makes them such a threat? Cause they are obviously thriving :scared:

Specific trees or trees in general? I bet the birds learn to eat them pretty quick :idea:

They like grape vines and apparently a threat to commercials.

Good call…if I can convince the current raccoon crew out back that lantern flies are delicious, they could spread the word :th:

First saw them in pa last year when I was car shopping,  damn things were all over the place, I mean by the hundreds outside the window of the dealership,  I remember thinking it won't be long till they are here with the dealerships transporting cars everywhere..
