Spotted Lantern Flies: What to do? Go ahead and kill them, but do no harm to other beneficial wildlife.
In August, the Spotted Lanternfly team tried some traps recommended by various sources. We were encouraged and thought they might be working fairly well.
(Note: added to post later) In early September, we discovered that the sticky tape version of the traps was killing many beneficial insects and also harming/trapping our beautiful local and migrating birds. So, Dave Nisthaus took the traps down for this season.
Be on the watch for the adult insects and now for the egg masses. We can keep reducing the numbers of this overpopulated new insect that has no predators on our continent.
