A damaging insect called the spotted lanternfly, once native to Asia, has now been found in New York and local experts are asking the public to help spot the invasive species.
The colorful insect, which has two sets of wings and can walk, jump or fly, can affect grapes, hops, almonds, apples, cherries and several varieties of trees, including oak, pine, poplar and sycamore.

If allowed to spread, the pest could seriously harm the grape, orchard and logging industries.
