7 Reasons Lanterns Spotted In NJ Support Gov. Phil Murphy
You have now heard of the spotted lantern fly. The devastating invasive species that hit New Jersey in 2018. They say they came from China and appeared in the United States in 2014.
We are all encouraged to do our part and kill them if we see them. Why? Because they destroy the crops. They are responsible for damaging over 70 varieties of plants and trees.
Now we learn from a study done at Satirica University by entomology professor Ulysses Barron Buggin that in addition to harming New Jersey agriculture, the spotted lantern fly is also politically active. The study shows that the lantern favors Gov. Phil Murphy in this year’s election.
The research project involving some 3,889 spotted lanterns most likely to infest a voting booth shows seven areas in which the species aligns with Murphy.
