Invasive Spotted Lanternfly stopped at CDFA Border Station

Spotted Lanternfly eggs and the firewood in question being inspected in Truckee.

The Spotted Lanternfly, an invasive species originating in China, has been detected in 11 eastern states in recent years, and California is working diligently to keep it away.

As part of that effort, personnel at CDFA’s Border Inspection Station at Truckee recently detected lanternfly egg masses on a trailer carrying firewood from New Jersey — one of the infested states. The firewood was confiscated.

The Spotted Lanternfly threatens a number of trees–including almond, apple, cherry, walnut and pine–as well as grapevines.

CDFA has 16 Border Inspection Stations throughout California for the detection and exclusion of invasive species.
