Spotted lanternflies are thriving in the Northeast. Scientists fear they could spread farther

Spotted lanternflies are thriving in the Northeast this summer. In New York City, where this year’s invasion seems particularly extreme, people squash them on the streets, on railings and even on their restaurant tables.

Does squishing invasive lanternflies really help stop their spread?
