😞 Sighhh. They’re back.

These are all Spotted Lanternflies.

From early-stage nymphs to late-stage nymphs to adulthood, they’re a significant threat to a wide range of agricultural crops.

The Spotted Lanternfly (SLF) is an invasive planthopper, first discovered in New York City in July 2020.

Harming the City’s wildlife is prohibited. However, in an effort to slow the spread of this species, if you see a Spotted Lanternfly, you should squish and dispose of it!

Learn how to identify them and help prevent their spread!

SLF adults are very colorful when their wings are displayed during hopping. They have red hind wings with black spots, a black head, and a yellow abdomen with black bands. Their grayish forewings have black spots with a distinctive black brick-like pattern on the tips.

New trash rules for residents:
 
This November, residents in 1-9 unit buildings (including single/two-family homes) will need to use trash bins. In June 2026, those residents will need to use the Official NYC Bin.
