The Spotted Lanternfly is an invasive insect that had not been seen in the United States prior to 2014, when it was found in Central Pennsylvania. If this species becomes established it could be a formidable threat to industry and the economy - of special concern for the fruit orchard, grape product, and logging industries. Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding said the invasive insect "threatens to destroy $18 billion worth of agricultural commodities here like apples, grapes and hardwoods, inflicting a devastating impact on the livelihoods of our producers and businesses."
Adults are spotted, brownish-grey about 1" to 1¼" long. Although they have two pairs of wings, they jump/hop more than fly. When they hop or take flight you may see their bright orange-red and white under-wings. There are no look-alike insects in the eastern U.S., so once you see those underwings, you know what you are looking at.
The small egg masses of 30-50 and 1"-2" round may be found in Fall located on solid objects like tree trunks, rocks, and picnic table. They are shiny at first, but soon dry and look like dabs of pale grey mud.
In the spring, those eggs hatch into tiny, 1/8"-inch, black and white, non-flying feeding-machines called nymphs. As the spring progresses, the nymphs pass through four stages, or “instars,” getting a bit larger each time. The first three instars are black with white spots, the fourth instar stage is orange with black and white spots about ½"-long.
In early summer the first adults begin to appear, and the cycle begins again.

|Message:||My wife and I just wanted to let your company know that we are very satisfied with the technician that came to our home today to help us with a rodent problem and begin quarterly service with you. Jesse was very professional. He listened to our concerns attentively, as we had a major issue with another local pest control company in the past. He came up with a solution that we were comfortable with and got our first service completed with no issues. We were going to just call as needed but decided on a quarterly plan on the spot when he explained in detail how it would work. Please ensure he receives the recognition he deserves for a job well done and new, very satisfied customers. We're looking forward to the next appointment. |
