Virginia winemakers are under a new threat. An insect called the Spotted Lanternfly is spreading throughout Virginia. In July, the state Department of Agriculture issued a quarantine for 12 counties and 10 cities.
The insect originated from China, and has wreaked havoc for some vineyards in Pennsylvania. There is a silver lining, however: people can prevent the spread of the insect. Roxy Todd tells us how.
If you see one of these insects, the state Department of Agriculture asks that you kill it immediately, and contact your local extension office.
