Selina saw many lantern flies.  Their red, spotted wings are pretty.  There is bad news!  This bug does not belong here.  It harms many plants.

Selina made a trap to zap them.  Bye bye, bugs!

Pray: Thank God He gives people ideas to keep plants and trees safe.

Selina Zhang is 18. She lives in Annandale, New Jersey. She saw spotted lanternflies. The bugs jump from plant to plant. They eat sap. Plants become weak. Lanternflies leave honeydew on trees. This waste harms plants. The pesky bugs are from China. They do not have enough predators in America. Selina made the ArTreeficial. It smells like China’s tree of heaven. Lanternflies love it. Two nets trap the bugs. One is electric. The tree uses AI to spot lanternflies. Zap! No more pests!
