Join the Hunt for Spotted Lanternfly Eggs
Adult Spotted Lanternfly (SPF) have died off, but now is the time to destroy the next generation that may be hiding all over your property! Find and destroy them to get ahead of next season’s outbreak.
What can they attach to? Spotted lanternfly egg masses are extremely versatile and can be found attached to any surface. And, because they blend into any surface, it makes them easy to transport and hard to identify. The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture recommends checking the following surfaces for egg masses before moving them from a quarantined area:
- Recreational or Camping Items – Backpacks, basketball backboards, bikes, boats & trailers, campers, motorcycles, motorhomes, RV’s, snowmobiles, sport equipment, tarps & tents. Be sure to include vehicle surfaces and wheel wells.
- Outdoor Household Items – Barrels, plant containers, firewood, propane or oil tanks, trash cans, storage sheds, shutters, screen doors and windows, awnings & outdoor furniture
- Building Materials – Bricks/cinder blocks, cement mixing tubs, buckets, lumber, roofing materials & pipe.
- Yard and Garden Items – Dog houses, rabbit sheds, chicken coops, grills, carts, cold frames, fencing, yard decorations, garden tools, signs & posts, lawnmowers, trees, shrubs and plants, playhouses, swing sets & trampolines.
