Learn about our spotted lanternfly control programs

The SPOTTED LANTERN FLY was first found in southern Berks County in 2014. This invasive pest from Asia has moved into several surrounding counties and is active through out most of our service area. The nymph stage of this pest can be very damaging to ornamental landscapes as well as orchards and vineyards. This is a “sucking insect” which feeds on sap running through vascular systems of plants. This activity weakens plants leaving them more vulnerable to other stress factors. This new pest is becoming an issue for many area homeowners. The feeding activity of the nymphs leaves behind a sticky residue that attracts bees and other insects. The residue also promotes the growth of black sooty mold which can cover patios, cars, anything under infested trees. The sheer numbers of adults can be quite unsightly covering walls, decks, play areas, etc. in a fashion similar to Stink Bugs. Fortunately, early control attempts have proven to be successful. We are currently offering a two-pronged approach to controlling this pest.

First, we can protect landscape plants by treating for The Spotted Lanternfly in the nymph stage with a Systemic Soil Drench control via the root system along with a foliar contact treatment and additional monitoring thru our Tree/Shrub Care team. Second, we can control adult infestations via our Outdoor Pest Control service
