My deck and patio furniture have been invaded by this bug. They hop like a flea. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
CLOSED: What type of insect?
This is a young nymph of a spotted lanternfly, a recently introduced Asian species that threatens to become a very serious pest - https://entomologytoday.org/2018/02/26/spotted-lanternfly-states-urge-citizens-report-sightings-invasive-insect-hitchhiker/
Thanks Flapdoodle. The infestation is well underway in my area. Looks like my silver maple may be the culprit but with a wooded lot behind my house I guess I can expect to see a lot more.
