Yep, posted the same link. Just across the Delaware from Burlington; pretty looking bug though :D

From the link;

Spotted lanternflies may lay their eggs on Christmas trees which could then hatch inside homes, the Philly Voice reported.


Freshly laid eggs “have a grey mud-like covering which can take on a dry cracked appearance over time,” the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture said, encouraging anyone who sees the masses to scrape it off.

Any sightings of spotted lanternfly eggs, which can be killed with alcohol or hand sanitizer, should be reported to state wildlife officials.

Don't delete it, the other one is buried.

My Dell tower was built on 12/30/2013. I kept the older one to use for photo/video stuff. You could be loading a lot of stuff at start up, or some registry items may be bad. You could also just not shutdown and hibernate or sleep it. Either uses very little juice and it will start right up.

I'm going to a free computer class for seniors. I told the instructor that my tower was like 8 or 9 years old. He said by todays standards it is not old...it is ancient. Told me to use it as a boat anchor. Towers are so cheap nowadays

Spotted lanternfly was just found in Mercer County too. A colleague of mine found one in his backyard in Bucks County, PA. Supposedly one of their favorite host plants is Ailanthus (Tree of Heaven), also an invasive.
