It's official- Spotted Lanternfly has made their way to Bucks and Montgomery Counties and the Philadelphia area. As we move into the cooler months of fall, the adult Spotted Lanternfly are dying off, but not before laying thousands of eggs which will hatch next spring. Now is the time for us to take action and destroy as many egg masses as we can. The experts at Giroud show you how to remove and destroy Spotted Lanternfly Egg Masses in an instructional video below!
Removing and Destroying Egg Masses will Greatly Reduce the Spread of Spotted Lanternfly
In this instructional video, Giroud Tree and Lawn explains what to look for and how to remove and destroy Spotted Lanternfly Egg Masses:
Where to Find Spotted Lanternfly Egg Masses
The first place to look for egg masses is on the undersides of branches of trees where you see Spotted Lanternfly feeding from. However, these tricky insects will actually lay their eggs on virtually any smooth surface, typically on the undersides where the egg masses are better protected from predators. Egg masses can be found on:
- Outdoor Grills
- Patio Furniture
