Twin Boro’s Proven Process for Spotted Lanternfly Pest Control

INSPECT
Our inspection includes a thorough visual survey to identify the insect and their host plants, such as the tree-of-heaven, where spotted lanternflies lay their eggs.
TREAT
From the findings in our inspection, we implement a targeted treatment plan which often include the application of insecticides on host plants to control the nymphs and adults.
PREVENT
To protect vegetation and to prevent spotted lanternflies from returning, recommendations may be given to remove primary host plant.

WHY?

Spotted lanternflies are often mistaken for butterflies or moths but they are actually a species of planthopper. These insects are not harmful to humans, but they feed on the sap of plants in large numbers, which can weaken and kill the plant.

“Roy is phenomenal. I used Terminix when I bought my home and got the corporate run around, missed appointments, rushed service, and crazy prices. I recently switched to Twin Boro and Roy has been great, helping with every issue, he climbs into the toughest spaces in my house and gets the job done. I would highly recommend Roy to anyone who in need of pest control.”

— Marc P.

“Roy came to my house because I had some carpenter ants coming in from outside. He was very knowledgeable as well as professional, he never tried to sell me on anything that wasn’t needed. He put down the right treatment and I haven’t seen any ants since. I would recommend Twin Boro to all of my friends who are in need of their service.”

Frequently asked questions

What do spotted lanternflies look like?
Spotted lanternflies undergo significant changes as they grow. They start as eggs in masses that are about 1 inch in size. Newly laid eggs are covered with a light gray, mud-like coating that turns tan and cracked over time. Nymphs go through four stages, initially black with white spots, growing up to ½ inch, and finally turning bright red with white spots and black stripes. Adults are about 1 inch long with gray forewings, red and black hindwings, and yellow abdomens with black bands. They can lay eggs on various outdoor surfaces.
How do you control spotted lanternflies?
New Jersey has set up a quarantine zone in 13 counties to prevent the spread of spotted lanternflies. Residents and businesses in Burlington, Camden, Essex, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Salem, Somerset, Union, and Warren must follow guidelines before moving certain items out of the zone. Residents need to complete a compliance checklist, while businesses must obtain NJDA permits. If you find lanternflies, consider professional pest control services for effective management.
Are spotted lanternflies dangerous?
Spotted lanternflies don’t bite or sting, posing no direct threat to humans, but they severely damage over 70 plant species by sucking sap, stressing plants, and reducing yields. Their excretion, honeydew, promotes sooty mold growth and attracts other insects like wasps and ants. Preferred plants include the Tree of Heaven and various fruit trees, grapes, hops, and several types of trees like maple, oak, and pine. This poses significant risks to agriculture and requires professional management.
