They are not a native species, they are originally from the Far East — China, Korea and Japan.
They were first found in Allentown, Pa. What probably happened was that they came in a cargo ship that came to either Baltimore or New York. The cargo was then unloaded onto a truck that drove to Allentown.
Over the past several years, the bugs have spread in all directions. They have been reported in Virginia, West Virginia, New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania, and have hitchhiked to places as far away as Oregon. One of the reasons there seems to be so many is that because they are not native and do not have any natural enemies.
