Time to learn about invasive spotted lantern fly—now in Pelham neighborhoods

To the editor:

I invite you to educate yourselves about the highly invasive spotted lantern fly, now found in our neighborhoods. Turns out it’s been in Pelham at least one year, but people didn’t know the problem it poses. There’s lots of information available online. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is monitoring its spread and noting our area, including all of Long Island, New Jersey and nearby Connecticut are in the infestation zone.
