What Are Spotted Lanternflies?

Spotted lanternflies are an invasive species from Asia that migrated to the U.S. in 2014. They are able to reproduce quickly, feed on local plants, trees, crops, and vines, and face no known specific predators. While they are weak flyers, these bugs can travel long distances aboard cars, trains, and trucks. 

How to Identify Spotted Lanternflies

Spotted lanternflies are easy to identify due to their unique look. If you think you are seeing these pests around your yard, you can identify them by the following characteristics:

  • Size: they are typically about 1” long and ½” wide.
  • Wings: their front wings are typically grey with black spots, and the back wings are red and black.
  • Look: they have black heads and visible forelegs.

Signs of a Spotted Lanternfly Infestation

Aside from their unique look, there are some commons signs that may indicate you have a spotted lanternfly infestation. These signs include:

  • Oozing or weeping plants with a fermented odor.
  • Sooty mold on infested trees or plants.
  • The buildup of the sticky fluid, honeydew, underneath affected plants.

If you’re noticing these signs, or you are seeing spotted lanternflies at your home, contact the professionals right away. Save your trees and plants from these pests with our spotted lanternfly reduction services in New Jersey.

What Damage Do Spotted Lanternflies Cause?

While they may be small, these flies can cause a lot of damage. They harm trees by feeding on the sap from stems, leaves, and tree trunks, and are also known to feed on commercial crops. After feeding on the plants, the insect excretes the carbohydrates from the sap into a honeydew-like substance. This sticky honeydew substance helps promote the growth of mold on the infested plants. This mold thus harms the plant.

Targeted Recurring Treatments

When you’re facing a spotted lanternfly infestation, you want reliable, effective solutions that work. At Simply The Best, we provide a five-step treatment plan to ensure your trees are protected, and your lanternfly population is significantly reduced. Once you contact us, one of our technicians will come out and survey your property and measure impacted trees. We then begin your initial treatment that same day. Our spotted lanternfly reduction in New Jersey consists of:

  • Initial Treatment - After a thorough inspection, we will spray tree trunks and low limbs up to 12 feet.  This will target nymphs (larvae) feeding on foliage and will also kill any adults that are present. We will also spray areas 6 feet out from the trees to prevent crawlers from infesting
  • Second Treatment - We will spray a systemic bark treatment that will provide long-lasting protection to the trees that are covered under our program.
  • Third and Fourth Treatments - We will spray the base, trunk, and limbs of the trees to provide continued protection.
  • Fifth Treatment - We will spray a systemic bark treatment to protect against insects overwintering in the bark of the trees.

Our solutions will not harm your trees but will prevent these nuisance pests from infesting and damaging them. This service is offered late spring through fall when trees are actively growing. Our spotted lanternfly service works by treating your trees, which kills the lanternflies when they try to feed on them, dramatically reducing the population of lanternflies on your property.
