As we are approaching late fall, we are upon the spotted lanternfly mating (SLF) season. It is important to note that SLF should be killed as soon as they are spotted, no matter what life stage they are in. They are an incredibly harmful invasive insect. SLF can be found in vehicles, trailers, brush, stones, outdoor furniture, grill, trees, etc. They prefer the invasive tree of heaven. You can expedite the Department of Agriculture and APHIS survey and treatment efforts by signing a Treatment Agreement for your respective property.
