NJ residents encouraged to destroy spotted lanternfly eggs this winter

The New Jersey Department of Agriculture is encouraging residents to kill spotted lanternfly egg masses.
The masses can hold 30-50 eggs. They can survive the winter and hatch in the spring.
People can scrape and press the masses with a credit card or a similar object until they hear a popping sound.
Spotted lanternflies are not a threat to humans but are considered an invasive species that feeds on vegetation.
