Where the Lantern Fly Fits: Circle of Life

Lantern fly’s are a new species in northeastern US, so a lot of the people in the area look at them as a threat, having no real purpose other than harming our crops. A squished lantern fly lies on the steps at work, and a yellow jacket feasts as people walk by!! Maybe there is a purpose of the new age pests-yellow jackets need to eat too!!
