Youth members will work with a team to develop individual research projects addressing global food security issues. Participants will meet once a week with mentors and peers to prepare their research projects. Projects will be presented at the Rutgers University Youth Institute Summit on March 5. During this day-long program, students get to learn about critical global issues, network with local leaders, engage in hands-on activities, and explore exciting ways to become effective change agents in their own communities, conscientious global citizens, and tomorrow’s scientific humanitarian leaders.

Have you seen this Insect?

Young juvenile spotted lanternfly
Adult spotted lanternfly
Older juvenile spotted lanternfly

Some people may think it is a moth but it’s really the Asian plant hopper known as the spotted lanternfly (SLF), Lycorma deliculata (White), and is a member of the order Hemiptera, family Fulgoridae. In the USA, the spotted lanternfly is an invasive species that could be very devastating to some New Jersey crops and hardwood trees.

If you think you have seen or collected a spotted lanternfly please report it (please include the town and county where the specimen was found and attach a photograph) to the New Jersey Department of Agriculture and the Department of Entomology at the Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences by emailing slanternfly@njaes.rutgers.edu. Farmers, nurserymen, and vineyardists should also report sightings to SLF-plantindustry@ag.nj.gov.
