Spotted Lanternfly Control by EcoGreen

Destroy the Spotted Lanternfly before it destroys you.

An insect known to be destructive to the tree-fruit, hardwood trees and to the nursery industries in Southeastern PA.

The spotted lanternfly is an insect known to be destructive to the tree-fruit, hardwood trees and to the nursery industries in Southeastern PA. It feeds on trees using a piercing-sucking mouthpart that taps into the plant like a straw. As it feeds on the plant, it excretes a honeydew substance which can create a black, sooty mold that attracts nuisance insects such as ants and wasps.

The trees can sustain damage and start to decline, ultimately resulting in the tree’s death. The PA Department of Agriculture has been conducting studies and trial treatments on the best way to control this insect.

How often Perimeter pest control should be applied?

The frequency of perimeter pest control applications depends on several factors, including the type of pests, the severity of the pest problem, and the specific product used. However, a general guideline for most perimeter pest control treatments is to reapply the product every 2 to 3 months, or as recommended on the product label.
